Agreed upon unanimously by the UN in September 2015, the SDGs set out a framework of 17 Goals to tackle the world’s most pressing social, economic and environmental challenges in the lead-up to 2030. The private sector has a critical role to play in the realization of these ambitions. The SDGs also provide a framework to support business in managing risks and identifying potentially historic market opportunities.
WBCSD’s SDG Action & Policy project looks to support member companies as they work to internalize the SDG agenda. It provides timely and tailored updates to members on the latest trends, developments and insight surrounding the SDGs. It also seeks to disseminate best practice in terms of SDG integration, foster opportunities for collaboration and provide a platform for business to interact with intergovernmental discussions at the UN-level.
