LBG is a measurement framework that enables companies to manage, assess and benchmark corporate community investment (CCI).
The framework was developed by an active network of CCI professionals from many of the world’s leading companies, who continue to advance it as the field progresses.
The most effective way to apply the framework is to join the network. As a member, you will access leading edge tools, consultancy support, best practice resources and the pooled knowledge of CCI professionals around the globe.
And that’s just the start.
LBG’s wide use is rooted in its simplicity, inclusivity and flexibility:
any company at any point of the measurement journey can apply the model.
Whether embedding data collection systems to record inputs;
advancing towards capturing outputs;
or leading impact assessment for flagship partners and programs,
LBG tailors support for each member depending on the stage they are at.
