The EDGE Certified Foundation Board is supported by two expert Advisory Councils – a Global Advisory Council and an Academic and Scientific Advisory Council – to help ensure that the EDGE Global Standards stay aligned to the organization’s values of credibility, rigour, and impact.
The Councils bring strategic thinking, critical insights, and specialized expertise to help EDGE Certified Foundation achieve its goals.
