Businesses looking for more information about how to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can now use the SDG Compass to access a new series of two-page briefing notes for each of the 17 SDGs.
The briefing notes summarize the challenges and aspirations underlying each of the SDGs, and give an overview of the role for business in their ultimate realization. They highlight the key themes of each SDG and outline the most commonly used corresponding business tools and indicators.
By collating the different points at which business can intersect with the SDG agenda, the briefing notes are an essential resource for companies seeking to better understand the SDGs and can help to explore opportunities for integrating the SGDs into company strategies and actions.
This latest online resource supports the wider SDG Compass guide for business, and complements the existing online inventories of business tools and indicators mapped against the SDGs.
Developed by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), the UN Global Compact and GRI.
