The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations in 2015. They are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
The 17 SDGs are integrated, recognising that action in one area will affect outcomes in others and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth. They also push to tackle climate change and preserve our oceans and forests.
Good Dividends promote these SDGs within businesses by providing supportive tools and know-how to organisation leaders in a concise and tangible form; to be used as a force for good.
"It's not what you can do for the SDGs; but rather how value can be realised for the business by pursuing the SDGs"
Luke Freeman, MF Freeman
Good Dividends translate the UN SDGs that focus on humanity's needs to become part of the everyday activity of the business.
Through the selection and pursuit of particular SDGs, value can be generated across the business. In this way, the business can be an enormous force for good. To understand how this can occur please try out the SDG Dashboard – the tool provides a selection process and measuring tool.
