Sustainable Development Goals Implementation

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): A strategic project of the NBI

Through our international partnership with the UN Global Compact, the NBI has adopted the SDGs as a useful strategic framework. Together with companies and relying on the uniqueness of the UNGC as a multi-stakeholder platform, the NBI will drive a thought leadership process on the SDGs, with the aim of building the capacity of companies to integrate and deliver on the goals and where possible, engage in collective action for greater scale and impact.

Within this process, we will highlight and share available tools and guidelines as well as existing and emerging company practices on the SDGs. Our objective is also to use the SDGs to drive conversations with companies towards economic transition and social transformation.
