Implement the SDG goals in your organisation! – by Global Compact Network Netherlands


This session will be in English.

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.

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 workshop Marco Swan, programme manager of Global Compact Network, will:

  • Learn you how to prioritize opportunities for SDG impact through core business activities – operations, products & services, and value chain.
  • Learn you 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 you 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.

Dit event is onderdeel van de Tripido 10-weekse waarin we werknemers en werkgevers inspireren en activeren tot nadenken over hoe zij hun kennis en energie maatschappelijk zouden kunnen inzetten. Kijk voor meer informatie op en bekijk de andere events in de WeShareTalent eventkalender.
