Join the Movement

Do you want to be in the right rooms with the right people having the right conversations about climate and sustainability? If your answer is yes, CBSR membership is for you. 


Membership is open to companies of all sizes with operations in Canada. Our one ask: you must be committed to (1) co-creating a sustainable, prosperous, socially just future in a generation, and (2) championing Canadian business as a force for good.  


In return, we’ll help you build your internal capacity to lead change and catalyze positive economic, environmental and social impacts across your organization and supply chain. We understand that sustainability teams face many of the same challenges and are also figuring out how to capitalize on diverse opportunities. Our unique network, resources and tools will help your organization navigate complexity, make good decisions, be more competitive, and inspire your team to go further, faster.
