Mission Statement

Founded in 1974, the World Environment Center is an independent, global non-profit, non-advocacy organization that advances sustainable development through the business practices of member companies and in partnership with governments, multi-lateral organizations, non-governmental organizations, universities and other stakeholders.

Description

WEC's value proposition focuses on:

  • Using leadership as a criterion for decision making by: recruiting as members companies that are leaders in sustainable development implementation; developing strategic initiatives that create unique value for business and society; and differentiating WEC as a unique global organization to advance the interests of civil society.

  • Being business relevant. WEC's business model is unique in its "direct, on-the-ground" application of sustainable development strategies and practices in developed and emerging markets. It convenes customers and suppliers to solve problems, helps integrate sustainable development into business operations and assesses business relevant strategies and processes across multiple sectors.

  • Behaving globally. WEC addresses issues from a global perspective that demonstrates connectivity among member companies and WEC partners and stakeholders.

  • Building learning and competency. Through its focus on emerging issues, core competencies and problem solving, WEC advances learning and builds competencies among member companies and other organizations participating in its various activities.
