SDG Impact Standards for Enterprises Training Course
Learn how to use the SDG impact standards for sound impact management and reporting.
The current challenge
The year 2023 marks the midpoint in humanity’s commitment to achieving the UN SDGs. Sadly, the latest Global Sustainable Development Report signals that we are seriously off-track to achieving the SDGs, and even more so than four years ago. Unless significant course correction actions are undertaken, our vulnerability to future crises becomes real.
For enterprises, this means taking steps to integrate impact management practices at the core of business strategy and operations becomes urgent and important.
A study published by PwC in 2019 shows that 72% of companies mention the SDGs in their annual reporting, only 25% refer to SDG in their business strategy and just 1% report measures of SDG progress.
This data calls for accelerated adoption of SDG impact standards.
By the end of the course, you should have completed the SDG Impact Self-Assessment Tool to identify priority gaps to tackle in your current practice.
Join a one-day online yet interactive course covering the SDG impact standards and their applications, split into 3 x 2-hour sessions over a month's time to cover the 12 key actions to design and integrate a strong impact management process.
