Tune into edie's free 30-minute masterclass on embedding the Sustainable Development Goals
Sustainability professionals are invited to tune into a free online masterclass taking place on Tuesday 14 November which will explore how organisations can effectively align their corporate strategies with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Taking place on Tuesday 14 November at 11am (GMT), this exclusive, interactive masterclass is the third in edie’s series of short, educational sessions for those who want to improve or refine their sustainability skills.
The masterclass will see Carolina Karlstrom, director of sustainability advisory and coaching business Jade Advisory, break down exactly how sustainability departments can capitalise on the opportunity presented by the 17 SDS, which all 193 UN member states are now using to frame their agendas and policies through to 2030.
The SDGs put a spotlight on some of the world’s biggest issues, with individual Goals ranging from ending poverty and achieving food security through to combating climate change and ensuring access to sustainable energy. In this light, the Goals represent a catalyst for low-carbon innovation and new market opportunities for businesses to embrace and drive sustainable growth.
But how should an organisation choose which of the 17 Goals are most relevant and applicable? Whose responsibility is it to raise awareness of the Goals and ensure they are being taken seriously? And ultimately, what should come first: the global framework, or the sustainability strategy?
This skills-focused session will seek to answer the above questions, and also explore:
- Bridging the gap in awareness of the SGDs among business and society
- Collaborating and sharing best-practice on the SDGs
- Measuring impact on each of the Goals and setting business priorities
The ‘How to embed the SDGs’ masterclass will be free to watch live at 11am (GMT) on Tuesday 14 November and will be made available for anyone to watch on-demand afterwards.
Carolina runs Jade Advisory, a sustainability advisory and coaching business. She has more than 20 years’ experience from the sustainable energy sector including leading the sustainability programme of an international renewable energy company. A mother of two and a part-time student on the MSc in Sustainability & Responsibility at Ashridge/ Hult Business School, Carolina is also the organiser of the Sustainable Development Goal Network Meetup’s in London, which brings like-minded people together to learn and discuss local actions towards the SDGs.
