GeSI is committed to sustainability actions and outcomes. Our governance style is characterised by transparency and inclusiveness with an emphasis on leveraging the collective participation of the many experts in our member and partner organisations. Six GeSI working groups- Communications, Climate Change, Energy Efficiency, e-Waste, Public Policy and Supply Chain- foster collaborative and innovative approaches to social and environmental sustainability.

Our members and partners use their collective knowledge and experience to identify opportunities and develop solutions to address issues in both developed and developing nations to quickly and effectively respond to issues such as climate change, energy efficiency, e-waste management, resource efficiency, responsible supply chain practices, labour rights and public policy.

Below our members and partners have shared their individual perspective on how they are benefiting from participation in GeSI activities and the added value thereof.
