What is MindShare?

MindShare is designed for professionals focused on finding innovative, sustainable business solutions. CCG members and WRI experts convene on challenges, opportunities, and insights to inform corporate sustainability strategy and CCG member engagement for the year ahead. The events are closed to non-members and confidential, to foster precompetitive discussions that focus on solutions to the thorniest issues in sustainable business.

“As a new CCG member, I enjoyed attending my first MindShare this year. Each session was an opportunity to better understand WRI’s work and gain insight into the important initiatives other corporate sustainability professionals are working on. The conversations also introduced me to the available tools, science, data, and trends and gave me some great ideas on how to incorporate all this into our work.”
