ISEAL is led by a senior management team and governed by a Board of Directors. ISEAL has three Committees that bring together representatives from ISEAL member organisations and external stakeholders who have a strong overall understanding of the standards world and the larger sustainability agenda: the Finance Committee, Membership Committee and Technical Committee. ISEAL also has an informal governance body – the Stakeholder Council – which provides strategic advice and input to ISEAL’s membership and Board.
Senior management team
Our senior management team directs our day-to-day work around the world. It’s made up of four directors and brings together a diverse and international collection of talents.
Karin Kreider, Executive Director
Patrick Mallet, Director, Innovations
Kristin Komives, Director, Programmes
Philip Wilson, Director, Finance and Operations
Our Board includes representatives from eight of our member organisations and three external representatives. It meets three to four times a year, guiding the strategic direction of ISEAL’s work and provides oversight of annual work plans and budgets.

The Stakeholder Council is made up of sustainability leaders and experts from the private and finance sectors, NGOs, governmental bodies and academic institutions. It meets annually in conjunction with ISEAL’s Annual General Meeting to discuss how ISEAL members can effectively respond to opportunities and challenges in the rapidly evolving sustainability landscape.
