Mission and vision

WBA envisions a society that values the success of business by what it contributes to the world. To do so WBA’s mission is to build a movement to measure and incentivise business impact towards a sustainable future that works for everyone.

Our long-term strategic plan is the seven systems transformations for benchmarking companies on the SDGs which can be consulted here. This report, together with the strategic guidance and approval of our Supervisory Board and our donors leads to a more detailed annual plan.
