SDG is an acronym for Sustainable Development Goals – a set of 17 goals developed by the United Nations for the purpose of securing a sustainable future for our planet and the generations to come.
With the UN as the driving force, the 17 goals were endorsed by all 193 UN member states in September 2015. The SDGs are supported by targets and indicators for companies, institutions and states to use as guidance in the quest for achieving a sustainable world by 2030.
The SDGs are a great tool for measuring sustainable progress within companies. We have used the SDGs as a guideline when we founded SDG Invest.
