Capacity Building

Capacity building is the process of solving problems that impact the quality of life for current and future generations and protecting the earth’s ecological support system.  WEC oversees a range of capacity building initiatives that advance sustainability, including: improving energy efficiency; reducing the use of water and other natural resources; enhancing environmental, health and safety performance; reducing chemical risks; investing in social capital; and promoting global citizenship activities.  The goal of WEC’s capacity building initiatives is to plan and achieve concrete, measurable results that contribute to both business and society and assist participating companies in becoming more competitive. This approach to capacity building emphasizes the development of cooperative relationships with business partners, government agencies, communities, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders.
