In this paper, I present a model that investigates the role of culture and leadership in the evolution of sustainability partnerships. Drawing upon theories of culture, leadership and collaboration, I propose that alternative leadership behaviours have differential effects on the evolution of sustainability partnerships. Furthermore, the role of leadership behaviours is influenced by several cultural dimensions. Specifically, I argue that sustainability partnerships evolve differently given varying levels of individualism, uncertainty avoidance and power distance.
