Quick Quote

Leo Johnson makes sense of sustainability. He pinpoints the trends – from climate change to increased regulation and threats to corporate reputation – then lays out both the risks and the opportunities for business and finance.

His key topic is ‘futureproofing’, bringing it into sharp focus (with the same flair for language as his brother, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson). Leo is Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance, advisor to over 50 global banks and businesses – and now part of PWC, leading their Disruption practice. He also co-presents the Radio 4 series “FutureProofing”, exploring the impacts of exponential technologies on business and society. Leo is the author of Beyond Risk and winner of the IFC Corporate Award for his work with the financial sector. He is a Fellow at Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise, and lectures at the LSE and the Cambridge Programme for Industry.

His presentations address the questions no forward-looking company can afford to ignore. What is sustainability? Is it just hype or does it seriously affect your business? What’s going on when activists collect in the lobbies of investment banks, and consumers re-think their preferences? Leo doesn’t just set the scene, he helps win management buy-in to push through the changes necessary to pursue the next major source of economic growth.

Aside from keynote and after dinner speeches, Leo has moderated international conferences with the likes of Kofi Annan, hosted the FT Sustainable Banking Awards and helped launch the Carbon Disclosure Project in Geneva. He is a regular presenter on BBC World, a commentator on CNBC and a frequent contributor to The Wall Street Journal, FT and Spectator.
