LBG is the global standard in measuring and managing corporate community investment.
The LBG Framework is a robust measurement standard that any company can apply to understand the difference their contributions make to business and society. The businesses using LBG are from some of the world’s leading organisations and are part of a global LBG Network.
LBG takes its name from the London Benchmarking Group. Established in 1994, the group was formed by six companies, coordinated by Corporate Citizenship, to create a common standard for measuring community investment.
Nearly a quarter of a century later and the LBG Framework is embedded into global indices such as DJSI with around 1,000 companies using it. In that time, the LBG Network has grown from the original six companies to around 180.
