A business guide to development actors
Introducing company managers to the development community
The International Business Leaders Forum

The Prince of Wales International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) is a non-profit
organization established in 1990 to promote responsible business practices that
benefit business and society and contribute to sustainable development. The IBLF
believes that business has a significant role to play in addressing the downsides of
globalization: poverty, social inequity, and environmental degradation. With a
membership of over 80 companies from around the world, the IBLF works at strategic
levels as well as in developing/transitional countries.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) is a coalition of
170 international companies united by a shared commitment to sustainable
development via the three pillars of economic growth, ecological balance and social
progress. The WBCSD Sustainable Livelihoods project is conducted by a pool of
visionary members who are prepared to share their experiences, their successes and
failures in doing business at scale in the poorest regions of the world, in ways that
benefit the poor and the companies. The Sustainable Livelihoods project also has a
brokering role to encourage novel partnerships between companies and in working
with donors to build \u2018investment friendly\u2019 institutional capacity. In addition, the
project delivers processes to help companies constructively work with other
development actors, such as governments and stakeholders, who create the
framework within which business operates.
