Our Team

The We Mean Business Coalition

Our Board, Secretariat and Grants Advisory Committee work together towards our mission to catalyze business and policy action to halve emissions by 2030 and accelerate an inclusive transition to a global net-zero economy by 2050.



The Board is made up of the leaders of our coalition partners: BSR, CDP, Ceres, CLG Europe, Climate Group, The B Team, and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). It is co-chaired by leaders from global businesses at the forefront of corporate climate action.
