Thought leadership on sustainability and issues such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability reporting, marketing, and the circular economy
Leaders often struggle to understand which choices are best when it comes to making investments in sustainability. One way to ease this struggle is to enable a stronger business case development and associated analyses of both tangible and intangible benefits connected to these investments.
April 12, 2016 /3BL Media/ - On April 6, 2016, more than 30 companies participated in the "Aligning Corporate Goals with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals" forum, where the World Environment Center (WEC) called on the private sector to align their business goals with the Sustainable Development goals (SDGs) of the UN.

December 16, 2015 /3BL Media/ - The World Environment Center’s (WEC) Board of Directors today announced a new slate of officers and members to lead and strengthen this global non-profit organization for 2016 and beyond. Appointed as the new Chairman is Francisco Suárez Hernández, Corporate Affairs Officer of Coca-Cola FEMSA, based in Mexico City. Mr. Suárez is WEC’s first Chairman from Latin America. He will lead the Board’s efforts to assess and implement a new strategic plan and expand membership development and related initiatives in this and other regions.
Linking sustainability to value creation is becoming a new imperative for business leaders.
When it comes time to crunch the numbers, sustainability initiatives may seem too abstract, too intangible. Frequently, benefits of this sort are difficult to quantify in ways that are credible to all decision-makers. How do you know you are making the right investments and optimizing business value?
