One year on from the launch of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Corporate Citizenship takes a look at how businesses have responded to the Global Goals, and what initial implications and opportunities the Goals have presented. We have put together a range of resources and information for corporate responsibility and sustainability practitioners. Please get in touch if you would like to know how we can help your organisation with its contributions to the SDGs.
As the anniversary of the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approaches, we have interviewed leaders across sectors and industries, from GSK to Save the Children, to gather valuable insights and perspectives on the SDGs. These discussions feed into a report that will be released in September 2016, looking at how stakeholder expectations of business have changed in light of the new Global Goals.
