Register right away


This webinar explores the theme of mission enterprise as an instrument for sustainability. After an introduction on this subject by Philippe Lambrecht, Secretary General of the FEB, we welcome Bram Van Baelen and Marleen Denef, founders of Impact Advocaten, who will explain the possibilities offered by Belgian legislation in this respect and the consequences of a change of status for an organisation that chooses to become a mission enterprise.

This rather theoretical introduction is followed by the testimony of Thomas Canon, Sustainability Program Director of IBA Group, and Christian Matton, Chief Legal Office, who will explain how IBA changed its status to become the first mission-driven organization in Belgium. 

Changing the status of an organization to become a mission enterprise is one of the actions that must be carried out to obtain BCorp certification. Having said that, this webinar is not meant to be an info session on BCorp and will only focus on the concept of the mission enterprise. If you wish to participate in a specific info session on BCorp certification, you can register for the session on 11 February via our activity tab. 

For whom?

All our members.
