Sustainable Development Goals

Improve your performance

Objective: Enhance your CSR strategy by linking corporate action to the universal language of sustainability. With SDGs, quantify your positive impact and seize new business opportunities

Why link your corporate strategy to the SDGs?

The Sustainable Development Goals encompass the key sustainability themes that the world needs to address in order to improve some of the most pressing social and environmental challenges. This universal agenda is intrinsically linked to the Paris Agreement on climate change and to the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction that were both adopted in 2015.

Since 2015, the SDGs have mobilized all types of actors, from governments to multi-lateral banks, private companies and networks.

Without the private sector, we will not create enough jobs, we will not bring enough dynamism and stability to the societies that need to be enhanced with the implementation of the SDGs.

António Guterres

Secretary General, United-Nations

The SDGs represent a clear economic imperative. Their achievement would mean greater productivity, increase employment and stronger economic growth.

John Danilovich

Secretary General, International Chamber of Commerce

It’s very inspiring to construct a portfolio with companies that commit themselves to improving the world by aligning with the UN SDGs. We focus on those who offer innovative solutions, and attractive financial and social returns.
