A blueprint for business leadership: edie launches Sustainable Development Goals report
Sustainability and CSR professionals looking to embed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within their organisation's business strategy now have access to a comprehensive new report which breaks down everything there is to know about the global Goals.
Some 10,000 companies around the world have now pledged in some way to support the UN’s SDGs in some shape or form, but reports continue to show that a huge proportion of these firms have yet to set any measurable targets to achieve the Goals, nor are they monitoring progress against them.
Combining expert insight with real-life case studies, this report offers clear, practical steps on how businesses can advance global progress towards achieving all 17 SDGs by 2030.
Specifically, this 21-page report outlines the importance of each specific Goal to sustainable development; illustrates the relevance of the Goals to the business community; and details how organisations within the private sector have taken action against each Goal so far.
The report concludes with an expert viewpoint from Ditto Sustainability's chief executive Daniel Botterill, who writes: "The 17 SDGs lay out a roadmap for human and environmental development for the next decade.
"Only by everyone pulling together can we reverse the negative trends we are living through - this means citizens, small businesses, corporations and governments. Business can do so much, and these chapters are really directed at you, if you work in or run a business."
