Grants to this Grantee
for a program to drive business commitment, action, and accountability on transparency issues
The B Team is comprised of prominent business and civil society leaders working together to build a transparent and responsible private sector by leveraging their influence and voice, and leading by example with their own companies. Collectively, The B Team is charting a new course for business, while helping to build a more sustainable future for all. Through its program, The B Team will engage and advocate for governments to adopt, implement, and enforce transparency norms and standards on business ownership and public contracting, encourage business to adopt a new set of principles on responsible tax practices, and strengthen emerging areas of business engagement to protect civic rights.
for a project to promote norms on open contracting, reduce tax loopholes, and track Sustainable Development Goals progress
The B Team was launched in 2013 by a group of business leaders with a commitment to promote transparency and responsible business practices toward a goal of enhancing the well-being of people and the environment. B Team leaders have made the commitment to lead by example through their own business practices. This grant supports two streams of their work: first, galvanizing the private sector in support of country-level implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals; and second, fostering transparent and responsive governance by promoting global norms and standards on open contracting, open governance, and fair international tax practices.
