Managing Corporate Sustainability Performance Through the New SDG Action Manager


According to a recent survey of companies participating in the UN Global Compact, 77% of businesses say that the UN Global Compact should provide guidance for companies on how to implement sustainability into business strategies and operations. In this Academy session, you will learn how to assess and improve your company’s contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the SDG Action Manager — a new impact management solution that enables companies to take meaningful business action and track progress through dynamic self-assessment, benchmarking and improvement. Speakers will give a live demo and share tips on the best ways to leverage the functionalities of the tool as well as insights from companies that are already using it. Developed by the UN Global Compact in collaboration with B Lab, the SDG Action Manager gives companies the opportunity to set clear goals on the SDGs and benchmark progress against industry standards. In addition, the tool provides access to a curated portfolio of tools, guidance material and resources.

Through this interactive session, you will learn to:

  • Integrate a principles-based approach to your company’s sustainability goals and impact management
  • Use the SDG Action Manager to measure your company’s positive and negative impacts on the Sustainable Development Goals and its implementation of the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact 
  • Benchmark your company’s sustainability performance against competitors and set goals for improving
  • Communicate about the importance of measuring sustainability performance within your company
