2018 has been another busy year at WBCSD so we decided to give you a “best of” the key outputs and events we have worked on over the last 12 months.


Cities & Mobility


Transforming Urban Mobility

The Transforming Urban Mobility project brings business and cities together to implement system-level and integrated initiatives to steer urban mobility systems transformation towards a safer, cleaner, more accessible and more efficient future.


Circular Economy



Factor10 was launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2018.


Climate & Energy


Natural Climate Solutions

Recent studies show that natural climate solutions could offer up to 37% of the emissions reductions needed between now and 2030 to limit global warming to 2°C. Our Natural Climate Solutions project (and the award-winning video) aims to help business unlock this untapped potential for addressing the climate.


Food, Land and Water


The Business Case for Investing in Soil Health

A new report “The Business Case for Investing in Soil Health” which shows how companies around the world are beginning to address the issue of soil health and identifies the next steps for scaling-up action and investment in soil health.




The Good Life Goals campaign

WBCSD, Futerra and a range of other partners have launched a fresh and fun perspective from which to approach action on SDGs: the Good Life Goals campaign - personal actions that everyone can take to support each of the 17 SDGs. The Good Life Goals can provide companies with valuable clarity into the ways the SDGs link to the actions, activities and lifestyles of their customers and where products and services fit into that picture.


Redefining Value


Applying enterprise risk management to environmental, social and governance-related risks

We launched the ESG Enterprise Risk Management guidance with COSO: Applying enterprise risk management to environmental, social and governance-related risks. This guidance is intended to bring ESG risks and opportunities into a clearer focus for mainstream business and other organizations around the world.
