The GISD Alliance is made up of 30 CEOs, recognized leaders of major financial institutions and corporations spanning all the regions of the world. 

GISD is supported by a core group of stakeholders from the UN System, including UN Global Compact, PRI, UNEP FI, UNDP, UNCDF and the Regional Economic Commissions, as well as the World Bank Group and the International Finance Corporation. These actors are coordinated by UN DESA and UNCTAD. They will assist the GISD in the implementation of its action plan, including the provision of background and analysis. 

The Alliance will moreover build on the membership and experience of various networks and initiatives in the UN system and beyond with the purpose of bringing together business solutions and policy initiatives.
