Advisory Committee on Environment and Society (ACES)

The NBI derives its identity and gravitas from the fact that we are a membership collective. It is critical that we therefore regularly engage with our member companies to ensure that the work we do aligns with their strategic interests and that we have a safe forum to discuss progressive action. In addition to one-on-one engagement, project interaction and event attendance one of our main engagement channels is The Advisory Council on Environment and Society (ACES). ACES is the key forum for member interaction in the context of environmental sustainability. The forum is open to all member companies and our quarterly meetings focus on understanding our members strategic needs, updating members on the work we are doing (confirming they are getting value for money and learning from their experience and expertise) and sharing information on our international partnerships, past and future NBI events, current industry trends, best practice and general industry and government activity.

Transformation Advisory Committee

The Transformation Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from member companies who will work with the NBI in addressing social transformation. The Committee provides strategic insight and input into the transformation programme and relevant projects and activities, and act as champions for this work.

Our vision is a South African business community contributing actively to social and economic transformation by creating jobs and economic opportunities and that identifies and addresses internal and external transformation challenges in order to ensure equity within the workplace and an organisational culture appropriate to this; as well as addressing the relationship between business and the rest of society in order to achieve increased equity.
