GreenBiz 18 Tutorial Slides: Fulfilling the Potential of Business to Realize the SDGs

While leading businesses have long been engaged in efforts to integrate sustainability at the core of corporate strategy and decision-making, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide us with a new lens through which to translate global needs and ambitions into business solutions. These solutions will enable companies to better manage their risks, anticipate consumer demand, harness the potential of historic growth markets, secure access to needed resources and strengthen their supply chains, while moving the world towards the delivery of the SDGs and a more prosperous society for all.

While business is not being asked to deliver the SDGs by itself, this complex and urgent agenda will not be realized without involvement at scale by the private sector. Converting the SDGs into meaningful and widespread corporate engagement, and ushering in the inclusive and sustainable economic growth that the Goals represent, will be a sizeable challenge.

Forward-looking businesses are already working towards having a meaningful impact on the SDGs - in particular by:

developing a thorough understanding of how their activities translate into economic, environmental and social impacts in the context of the SDGs;
setting ambitious goals to implement the SDGs, including by incorporating responsible business practices across strategies and operations;
pursuing impactful contributions to the 2030 Agenda through a strong commitment to universal principles in relation to human rights, equality and the environment;
developing business solutions to address sustainability challenges;
collaborating with peers to develop a collective vision and roadmaps to realize substantial sector transformation;
working across sectors to help transform entire economic systems;
disclosing SDG performance and progress;
openly advocating for key policy and finance enablers that will help achieve a tipping point.
