Today, we are excited to announce the launch of the first consultation period on the SDG Impact Standards for Enterprises
– designed to promote sustainable development and advance private sector contributions toward achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (#SDGs).
The Standards for Enterprises are third among our sets of Standards, which also include a set for Private Equity Funds
and one for SDG Bonds
. All our Standards are the product of a monumental effort by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), which launched @SDGImpact in September 2018, to empower investors and businesses with the clarity, insights and tools required to support and authenticate their contributions to the SDGs. […]
We welcome your participation in our consultation process – a 60-day period starting today and ending on December 15. You are invited to engage with us in shaping the Standards. All Enterprises – irrespective of size, geography, or sector – can use the Standards as a best practice guide and self-assessment tool. They are a shared public good; we will refine them based on comments received during the next two months.
