Based on the principle of leaving no one behind, the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to tackle poverty, climate change and inequality. These Goals represent the largest ever call for collective action by governments, institutions, businesses and citizens. To achieve the SDGs and so build a sustainable future for everyone, it is essential to develop the positive impacts of business and mitigate the negative.
Business in the Community’s Responsible Business Map helps companies to navigate and contribute to the SDGs by identifying the key issues and explaining the actions and outcomes needed for businesses to achieve long-term financial value, enabling both society and the planet to thrive.
