You are here: Home About us Governance


The MSC is an international non-profit organization committed to the values of independence, transparency, impartiality and stakeholder participation. We uphold these values through our governance structure, our credibility and by encouraging people to get involved.

We work in partnership with a number of organisations, businesses and funders around the world but are fully independent of all. Stakeholders from a range of backgrounds contribute to the MSC program ensuring balance and preventing the dominance of single interests.

To support transparency in our operations we publish information and documentation that encourages stakeholder engagement, including our Strategic Plan 2017-2020.
