Contribute with the Sustainable Development Goals and add value to your business
The world’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) are creating a platform to meet the greatest challenges of our times.
The private sector has an important role to play, following the pathway to a sustainable future for all, incorporating the goals into the business plan and increasing companies resilience to challenging times ahead.
The United Nations in partnership with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) launched an initiative to support companies in aligning their strategies with the SDGs and in measuring and managing their contribution - SDG Compass.
New Zealand's government signals a new approach towards the wellbeing and living standards of its citizens, putting forward the Living Standards Framework and developing a set of Wellbeing Indicators Aotearoa. New legislation deserves business attention and a more sustainable position such as the Zero Carbon Bill and reforms of the Resource Management Act.
We can help you navigate through this new sustainability landscape, harnessing opportunities, overcoming challenges and avoiding risks.
We can help your company start on this path.
