The IGI Group is guiding the development of the IGIs

The IGI Process is being guided by the IGI Group, which is comprised of the IGI Working Group (IGI WG) and the Technical Experts.

The IGI Working Group (IGI WG) is a sub-chamber-balanced working group, meaning that there are two representatives (one from the South and one from the North) from each of our Membership Chambers – Social, Environmental and Economic.

The Technical Experts comprises one representative from each of our six global regions and two representatives from Certification Bodies (CBs).
