THE LBG MODEL

Effective measurement is key to effective management.  

LBG enables companies to capture corporate community investment data in a systematic manner and apply logic to social investment. Access to benchmark and peer data, and the ability to assess the outputs and impacts of community initiatives enhances internal decision-making and planning for member organisations.

Beyond this, membership allows companies to collaborate and participate in the evolution of the methodology. An internationally recognised approach, it is aligned with key global sustainability indices such as DJSI, GRI and CRI.
