How to Set Ambitious Corporate Targets and Accelerate Integration of the 17 SDGs
Discover how SDG Ambition can help your company move beyond incremental progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and step-up transformative change — unlocking business value, building business resilience, and enabling long-term growth. With the deadline of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development fast approaching, urgent and ambitious action is needed in order to achieve the Global Goals. As we set out to recover better together from the COVID-19 pandemic,now is the time for all companies to raise their ambition for people, planet and prosperity — taking action across all of the Global Goals and at a scale that can create the tipping points for the world we want.
That is why, the UN Global Compact is introducing SDG Ambition — an accelerator initiative that aims to challenge and support companies in setting ambitious corporate targets and accelerating integration of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into core business management. As a part of this accelerator initiative, the UN Global Compact is proposing a set of SDG business benchmarks that sets the standard for all companies to take more ambitious and comprehensive action across their operations and value chains to measurably accelerate progress on the SDGs. In this Academy session, you will learn more about the SDG Ambition Accelerator Initiative and how your company can benefit from participation.
