CEF research produces actionable insights and state-of-the-art tools for senior executives leading the execution of eco-strategies in large corporations. Our methodology combines comprehensive analysis of existing published research with original research based on executives’ real-world experience on what has actually worked—and what hasn’t. Findings are delivered to members in various formats, including comprehensive reports, white papers, briefing memos and more. Recent research efforts culminated in a Harvard Business Review cover story on why sustainability drives innovation within Global 500 companies.
The CEF research team has strong experience in top-rated business research as well as executive-level experience in running businesses. Research efforts are guided by the CEF Advisory Board and Leadership Council, which include world-renowned management experts and seasoned executives from the Global 500. This combination of thought leadership and operational experience is a key reason for the recognition given to the Corporate Eco Forum as well as its predecessor organizations run by the Sand Hill Group.
