Thought Leadership

Sharing Knowledge to Create Value for Business and Society
  • Serve multinational manufacturing and processing corporations represented by senior-level Environment, Health and Safety (EH&S); Purchasing & Supplier Relations; and Corporate Social Responsibility executives.

  • Provide meetings, workshops, exchange of information and expertise, and a worldwide network of contacts.

  • Establish and promote partnerships among industry, government and non-governmental organizations.

By promoting cleaner production and energy efficiency practices and technologies, the CPP Project aimed to reduce environmental and societal impact of business operations upon local communities and the global biosphere, as well as to improve their environmental, health and safety performance.

Since its inception in 1977, the WEC membership forum, previously known as the International Environment Forum (IEF) has held over 150 meetings with environmental ministers or other high-level government officials. Approximately two roundtables per year are held in Europe, with two more in North America and Asia. This provides members and other participating companies the opportunity to interact with global peers, along with access to a diverse international network of government representatives, global managers and representatives of international organizations.

The meetings provide the following value:

  • Convening renowned experts from outside industry, such as academia, government or investment groups, who offer their unique perspective on the issue at hand.

  • Bringing together leaders from within industry that are able to present to our membership, often among their own competitors, on best practices and lessons learned regarding the issue of the meeting. The intimate setting of these meetings – often in a member’s headquarters – and the knowledge and experience of our member delegates allow for an honest exchange of ideas and case studies.

  • The ability to network and develop relationships with colleagues sharing a wide range of experiences and backgrounds in the field of EH&S and Corporate Social Responsibility.
