ABOUT US

The Shift (www.theshift.be) is the Belgian sustainability community. Our network of diverse organisations share a common goal: to actively work together towards a more sustainable economy and society. The Shift connects over 580 companies, NGOs, public and academic actors in Belgium, serving as the national point of contact for the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and the B Corp Movement.

Our mission is to facilitate and accelerate the sustainability agenda, driven by three forces:

CONNECT - Organising networking opportunities for our members around pressing sustainability challenges.

COMMIT - Assisting our members in setting long-term sustainability goals.

CHANGE - Initiating innovative projects to address complex challenges with committed members.

Guided by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and inspired by younger generations challenging the status quo, our objective is to transition to a socio-economic model that ensures wellbeing for all within planetary boundaries. To lead the way to a net-zero economy, we launched the Belgian Alliance for Climate Action (BACA), a joint initiative by WWF Belgium & The Shift. For over three years now, BACA has been the national climate platform where organisations, mainly companies, unite on a decarbonisation track based on the Science Based Targets methodology, showcasing ambitious climate leadership.
