I had the pleasure of attending my first GreenBiz conference in February in Phoenix - never been to the State before but definitely want to go back. One of the reasons for goign was the launch of the UN Global Compact's SDG Action Manager.
Although important progress has been made by the business community, we have a lot more work to do to achieve our vision of a better and more sustainable future for all.
Not only do the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) identify where we should be in 2030 to create the sustainable world we seek, but they also provide a unique chance for all sectors to rally around a common global agenda – one that unites us to take responsibility to improve people’s lives and save our planet.
For this reason, the United Nations Global Compact is introducing the SDG Action Manager to provide all types of businesses with an opportunity to learn about, manage, and directly improve their sustainability performance.
Developed in cooperation with B Lab, the SDG Action Manager is a web-based impact management solution to enable businesses to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals through 2030.
The SDG Action Manager brings together B Lab’s B Impact Assessment, the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, and the Sustainable Development Goals, to enable meaningful business action through dynamic self-assessment, benchmarking, and improvement. It is informed by the work and feedback of a range of stakeholders, including experts in corporate sustainability, civil society, UN, and academia; and it is inspired by the Certified B Corp community and participating companies of the UN Global Compact.
The SDG Action Manager is available in English, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
SDG Action Manager enables a company to:
