Maria Mendiluce

Maria Mendiluce was appointed as CEO of the We Mean Business coalition in 2020, at the start of a critical decade for climate action. The We Mean Business coalition brings together seven international organizations: BSR, B-team, CDP, Ceres, CLG Europe, The Climate Group, and WBCSD, which together catalyze business leadership and policy ambition to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy.

Formerly managing director at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) covering Climate & Energy, Circular Economy, and Cities & Mobility, Mendiluce played a pivotal role in guiding over 200 member companies to take transformative action on climate policy, energy transition, plastic waste, and urban mobility. She has also held senior positions at the Economic Bureau of the Spanish Prime Minister, in the CEO’s office of Iberdrola and at the International Energy Agency.
