Emerging Market Multinationals Network

Emerging Market Multinationals Network (2013; Berlin; https://www.emm-network.org )

Initiated by the German Agency for International Co-operation (GIZ) – a government agency and one of three interconnected networks of the “Emerging Market Sustainability Dialogues”.

The network works on business model innovation for sustainability in emerging markets and their initiatives focus on sustainable forms of Mining, Infrastructure, Textiles, and Return on Investment.

16 multinational companies have membership and there are 27 partner organizations. Their goal is to “develop and implement progressive sustainability and environmental standards, turning them into successful business solutions that benefit our customers, the environment, stake- and shareholders. We ensure that insights from these business solutions feed into global fora and processes such as the G20, the OECD, or the World Economic Forum.”

Events like workshops, conferences and corporate social responsibility retreats are hosted on a regular basis “to explore challenges and opportunities, share best practices, and develop cutting-edge approaches to sustainable business models in emerging markets.”

Publications:

  • Guidelines and best practices;
  • Policy recommendations;
  • Reports and Conference summaries.
