Global Recognition for Sustainability Leadership

The GPM® Sustainability Centre of Excellence is a distinction for organizations that have made the commitment to adopt sustainability standards with the aim of maximizing the benefits of change delivery through Portfolio, Program and Project management. 

Top Organizations

Organizations accredited with CoE status are at the forefront of the global sustainability movement and understand the importance that sustainability has in achieving core business strategies while meeting the increasing demand for stakeholders, partners, employees, and consumers.

Focused on Change

In order for sustainability to equate to business value, it must be firmly integrated into their short and long term strategy, and take root in organizational culture. 

Since 2010, the number of organizations that are reporting on sustainability to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and or UN Global Compact has increased significantly.  The challenge of "what is material" for sustainability reporting is moving the discussion beyond operations and supply chains. 

In any environment, the only constant is change. Organizations that have included change capability, capacity, and delivery as part of their sustainability strategy can integrate sustainability organically as the organization grows, products and services evolve and mature.
