Since 2010, CEC has served individuals and organizations throughout the world. We recognize the benefits of disseminating lessons learned from practicing Eco Commerce in a variety of settings and serving clients with different needs and resources. 

Eco Commerce roots are in the United States and Europe. Early practitioners have joined us to gain knowledge, share best practices, and join our partner projects. As our international network adapt Eco Commerce practices to their local economies, global information exchange resulted. Today, organizations can develop their private-branded Hubs to boost Eco Commerce in their own region. CEC: 

  • Is the recognized authority on Eco Commerce and thus “one-stop” destination to seek local and global contacts and solutions;
  • Is a clearinghouse of knowledge from multiple sources, and stakeholders learn from the successes and mistakes of other stakeholders;
  • Is a fast growing network of Eco Commerce leaders worldwide that stakeholders can contribute to and tap into;
  • Hands-on-advisory and soft-landing services and information resources focus on practical advice and on identifying issues and actions that impact the industry;
  • Networking and educational events attract people from around the world who come to share knowledge and enhance their personal support networks;
  • Sustainability Centers provide local business support to stakeholders worldwide.

CEC hosts international Eco Commerce Leaders in Atlanta, Georgia, to discuss how individuals and organizations can work together to promote the growth of the Eco Commerce across continents.
