The Shift was created in June 2015 by the former sustainability networks Kauri and Business & Society Belgium. It is a Belgian sustainability network that brings together around 350 companies, NGOs and other organisations to stimulate partnerships and help co-create sustainable business models.
The Shift’s aim is to realise, together with its partners and members, the transition to a more sustainable society.
“Societal challenges are so big, no individual organisation can tackle them alone. The Close the Gap innovative network model is a wonderful example that helps solve societal problems through smart collaboration between businesses and non-profit organisations.”
Mr. David Leyssen
Co-Executive Officer, The Shift
