Our world lacks a mechanism to hold the most influential companies accountable on their impact to planet and people. As a result, the majority of companies avoid their responsibility and don’t take the urgent action that is needed. Equally, those that do live up to their responsibility are not rewarded accordingly.

Closing the corporate accountability gap is the core of WBA strategy, as a co-founder of WBA and in his role as Executive Director, Gerbrand is responsible for delivering this strategy.  

Gerbrand originally founded and led Index Initiative, one of WBA’s founding partners, where he led the global consultation on the WBA. Prior to this, Gerbrand worked for the Dutch Government in the areas of inclusive business, sustainable agricultural supply chains and food security.
