Abstract: Based on the wisdom of noted visionaries, this paper discusses key insights into the values and principles essential to developing sustainability. The business sector today has risen to being considered the most powerful sector of society. Therefore, large corporations particularly are slowly realizing that WITH this powerful position come new responsibilities, meaning the need to take responsibility for ‘the whole’ (ecological, social aspects) in addition to their present objective of optimizing shareholder profit. This paper can place conference participants in the forefront of management education thinking by providing new insights into sustainable values and principles essential for future management teaching.
