The ECG track is for companies who want to increase their positive impact and contribute to the Common Good: a good life for everyone on a healthy planet. At the heart of ECG is the idea that value-driven businesses are mindful of, and committed to: Human Dignity, Solidarity and Social Justice, Environmental Sustainability, Transparency and Co-Determination. Adopting these core values makes your company future-proof and a frontrunner of the new economy.

On this track companies have the opportunity to develop their Common Good Report, which is a 360° sustainability management tool that improves professional relationships and stimulates motivation, innovation and productivity. In the marketplace, a Common Good Report shows that you are a reliable partner with ethical values. It also connects you to a diverse network of like-minded companies, municipalities, educational institutions, and nonprofit organisations. There are over 4000 members worldwide, based in 35 countries. To get ECG-certified, you need an external audit of your Report.

The track starts with an information session on 9 May to prepare for certification, which includes expert webinars, training and group consulting spread over 32 hours and ends in October 2022. Find out more.

The goal for ECG track participants is to produce a Common Good Report that is ready to be audited. Participants can produce the report on their own or join the first or both parts of the preparation process. Click here for more information.
