We work closely with a broad range of partners from different sectors, from influential upstart businesses to social enterprises, NGOs and foundations, governments and academic institutions that share our purpose of reinventing the way the world works.

We were the first NGO set up to work alongside, rather than against, business, and to help business do better by being better. 20 years on and we work with some of the world's most pioneering businesses, helping them deliver and refine the case for putting sustainability at the heart of their corporate strategies and relationships.

Over the years we’ve helped create myriad new partnerships, coalitions and organisations, all accelerating the big shift to a sustainable future. Together we represent a force of pioneers ready and willing to create new ways of doing things and to transform the systems we all use and depend on.
