The Institute of Directors is delighted to announce a strategic collaboration with the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. Core to the collaboration is a shared goal to support the development of directors and boards in the critical area of sustainability, so that we can tackle the climate crisis together and create a positive legacy for generations to come.
