Sustainability experts all over the world are now emphasizing the importance of the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. They are inviting politicians, CEOs and world leaders to put the SDGs on top of mind.
The Corona crisis is seen as a sign to the world for transforming our profit driven economies to value driven economies for society. The UN Agenda 2030 is the first agenda in history of mankind that focusses on value for people and society and taking care of our environment. However many SDG targets and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are applicable to governments: almost 40%.
It is not always easy for private sector companies how to maximize their contribution to the SDGs. The UN Agenda 2030 tells you what to do, but not how? Fortunately, organizations can benefit from the best sustainability frameworks in the world: ‘ISO 26000 Guidance on Social Responsibility’ and ‘ISO 20400 Sustainable Procurement’. These holistic frameworks helps you to ‘think and act’ in an integrated way and maximize your contribution to the SDGs.
In Germany Prof. Dr. Annette Kleinfeld (Business & Society at the Konstanz University of Applied Sciences) worked together with Monika Shukla from India to develop the ‘SDG Voyager’. This voyager provides concrete information how to contribute to the different SDG targets by applying the sustainability frameworks of ISO 26000 and ISO 20400. It is a unique and practical guidance document that you now can download for free.
The SDGs: on top of mind, strategy and action!
