Understanding the relationship between empathy and sustainability, is vital for the health and happiness of both people and planet.

Emotional intelligence, in particular empathy, is one of the top characteristics needed for purpose-led companies, and sustainability leadership. And yet, these feminine traits are so often undervalued.

The good news is, according to Roman Krznaric, empathy advisor to organisations such as Oxfam and the United Nations, empathy is an attitude which can be cultivated, and used as a radical force for social transformation.

So, not only does empathy have the power to change the world, but it can help save it, too.
