The information within this document was developed under the auspices of Ipieca and WBCSD. It represents the work of Ipieca members and experts from WBCSD. The document also benefitted from the inputs from external stakeholders. Ipieca and WBCSD would particularly like to thank ERM, Vicky Copeman, Bryan Hartlin and Laura Street (facilitators), and Rikki Campbell Ogden (designer).

This publication is released in the name of Ipieca and WBCSD. It is the result of a collaborative effort by members of their secretariats and representatives from Ipieca’s member companies. A wide range of Ipieca members reviewed drafts, thereby ensuring that the document broadly represents the perspective of the Ipieca membership. It does not mean, however, that every member company agrees with every word.
