SDG Ambition: Scaling Business Impact for the Decade of Action

Burgess COMMENTARY

Peter Burgess
SDG Ambition: Scaling Business Impact for the Decade of Action gbg_webcast_unglobal_sdgambition_300x300 Now more than ever, companies everywhere must unite in the business of a more resilient, sustainable world. Despite progress made in many areas, we are not on track to deliver on the SDGs by 2030. In fact, the United Nations Global Compact Progress Report 2020 reveals only 39 per cent of companies surveyed believe they have targets that are sufficiently ambitious to meet the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Less than a third consider their industry to be moving fast enough to deliver priority SDGs. While 84 per cent of companies surveyed are taking action on SDGs, only 46 per cent are embedding them into their core business and only 37 per cent are designing business models that contribute to the SDGs. The need for increased business ambition is clear but how do companies get started? How do they set ambitious benchmarks in the areas that will have the greatest business impact on the SDGs and accelerate integration of sustainable development into enterprise management processes and systems? In this webcast:
  • Learn how to prioritize opportunities for SDG impact through core business activities – operations, products & services, and value chain
  • Learn about best practice business benchmarks to gauge whether corporate activities are aiming at the necessary level of ambition to deliver on the SDGs
  • Hear how companies can set goals - or level-set existing goals - in line with what is required to achieve the SDGs and about the processes and tools required to meet them
  • Learn about SDG Ambition, a new accelerator initiative, in partnership with SAP and Accenture that aims to empower and equip companies to set ambitious corporate targets aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and accelerate integration into core business management

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
