WEC membership value

The WEC serves as a platform for senior executives from various organizations to exchange practical solutions promoting corporate sustainability. Our core belief is that recognizing sustainable development excellence through the Gold Medal Award inspires continuous improvement of corporate practices.

Aside from being a platform for discourse and dialogue, the WEC also offers members the opportunity to collaborate on international capacity-building projects that support small and medium enterprises in their upstream supply chain. We also run a Next Tier mentoring program that helps advance sustainability throughout the value chain and serves as a practical learning opportunity for sustainability managers.
