SDG Update 3: Take the Next Step Now that the SDGs Have Been Adopted

ISSUE 3 - 28 September 2015

Take the Next Step Now that SDGs are Officially Adopted

On Friday, all 193 Member States of the United Nations adopted a plan for achieving a better future for all – laying out a path over the next 15 years to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. At the heart of “Agenda 2030” are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that address the most important economic, social, environmental and governance challenges of our time.
Now that all of us have agreed on where we want the world to go, it’s time for your company to play your part in helping to make the SDGs a reality. Operating in line with universal principles is the first step. Then, there is a world of opportunity once your company has taken care of basic responsibilities.
The SDGs provide a clear, common aspiration that all companies can mobilize around – allowing business to align their own sustainability goals with goals for the broader society. With trillions of dollars in public and private investments expected to redirect towards achieving the SDGs, there is an enormous opportunity for responsible companies in the coming years.
