Membership advantages

The GCNB membership is open to all organizations (for profit and non for profit) who are registered and operating in Belgium. Our network offers a unique opportunity for organizations to engage in a worldwide sustainability platform and to make a difference locally. Thanks to the alliance with the sustainability network The Shift, members of the GCNB also benefit from shared services which can be resumed as following:

CONNECT: Join a unique and diverse Belgian network of 350 companies and non-profit organisations that share the same ambition to co-create added value for society.

COMMIT: Learn how to use the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in order to map your societal ambitions for the coming years.

CHANGE: Develop, together with our members and partners, innovative business models and societal projects to help solve the biggest challenges for our society.
