Adding value to member companies: The Global Network offers a channel for member companies to reach out to business and opinion leaders at international and national levels. It opens avenues for member companies to create links to new suppliers, sources of raw materials, and markets and implement local initiatives.
Access to leading edge knowhow: Members of the Global Network gain access to the latest thinking and best practices on sustainable development. These include learning by sharing opportunities, tools and capacity building material. It also assists in facilitating learning across countries and sectors, particularly among partner organizations in countries with similar socio-economic and cultural characteristics.
Enhancing our global status: The network provides local BCSDs and the WBCSD with a global presence to support advocacy efforts and to implement projects at national level. At the same time, local organisations provide input into WBCSD work to ensure their relevance and usefulness for local businesses.
