The committee’s role is to ensure the strategy is consistent with the delivery of sustainable change for all its stakeholders. 

Whilst Rewired Earth ‘owns’ the tools and platform, we are a not for profit, and everyone should benefit from our existence. In harnessing knowledge and expertise from across academia, science, business, government, regulators and civil society, we will drive and embed change globally.

Rewired Earth are bringing together a team with truly diverse expertise and experience across business, government, academia and civil society. The role of the advisory board is critical to Rewired Earth's governance structure. The board meets formally quarterly.

Vital to our model is the group of academics, lived-experience experts, politicians and business leaders to continually refine and improve the Impact Metrics that make up our model. Mapped against all of the established standards, we are starting with the metrics that are most impactful and easily extracted through a supply-chain.

Taken from across business, government, academia and civil society our industry experts work across the market to ensure our methodology can be easily adopted and is fit for purpose.
