The International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) is an independent, global members organisation of over 150 leading multinational companies. We work across the sectors of business, governments and civil society, focusing on critical sustainability, growth and leadership issues.
Since 1990, IBLF has focused on the themes of business leadership and corporate responsibility, working directly with CEO and Board level executives to drive change across their companies and networks.

This is underpinned by our approach, which we classify as leadership and collaboration.
