GreenBiz Executive Network
GreenBiz Executive Network (GBEN) is a peer-driven membership group designed to support sustainability professionals from the world’s largest companies in driving transformation across their organizations. We do this by creating highly curated experiences that deepen exchanges and build capacity for our members as they embrace increasingly ambitious goals.
Across in-person gatherings, virtual meetings, supporting resources and peer-to-peer forums, GreenBiz Executive Network members benefit from the expertise of GreenBiz subject matter leads, invited experts, and other members.
GreenBiz Executive Network Interest Groups
Now more than fifteen years old, GreenBiz Executive Network (GBEN) has grown to include a growing number of interest groups focused on Strategy, Circularity and Transport. GBEN members receive access to all interest groups within one membership.
Strategy - North America: Designed for North American sustainability and corporate social responsibility executives to meet with peers to gain guidance and insight for better decision-making.
Strategy - Europe: Curated for corporate sustainability leaders based in Europe, this cohort meets both virtually and in person to share insights, lessons, and resources.
Circularity: Developed for professionals from the world’s largest companies to increase the impact of circular economy initiatives.
Transport: Designed to cover the most critical areas in transport decarbonization, including road, logistics, freight, aviation and maritime.
What Makes GBEN Unique?
Peer driven: As questions, concerns, and ideas surface from the group, GBEN’s facilitators structure conversations, presentations, and resources to address the needs of the group.
Expert facilitation: GBEN’s facilitators bring years of experience to their work and have access to all of GreenBiz’s analysts, reporters, and partners.
Diverse member roster: Members come from a wide range of industries. This diversity of experience ensures a robust discussion. While members come from many industries, the revenue requirement ($1 Billion in revenue) ensures that the focus is on broad multi-site (typically multi-national) businesses.
Designed for the entire sustainability team: With a broad range of topics explored, sustainability leaders have the ability to share membership with their team and, when appropriate, teammates from other departments.
No sales pitches: Consultants and sales people are not allowed in the meetings.
