Let us help you boost social impact through the Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a unique framework your company can use to increase social value while benefiting business. More than half of the SDGs – or Global Goals as they’re also called – focus on enhancing the prosperity and wellbeing of people. Supporting the goals that promote respect for the environment can also create significant social impact.

The economic benefits of SDG support by private sector companies are compelling. Experts calculate that aligning business models with the Global Goals will open up 12 trillion USD in market opportunities and create 380 million jobs by 2030. Many of these opportunities are present in developing markets. That’s why more and more large and small businesses across the globe have started to advance the SDGs.

By promoting the Global Goals your company creates value for society and for business. Find out how in our free FairChange eBook: 10 Business opportunities of supporting the SDGs

Still, many large and small companies struggle to incorporate the Global Goals into their strategies. Existing guidelines are not always clear about how to translate the macro-level goals into business targets and local operating realities. Companies in emerging markets often wonder how to seize the opportunities for SDG support in complex environments.

At FairChange we help you make sense of the SDGs.

We’ll be glad to guide you through the steps of designing SDG driven social impact strategies that are relevant to your operating context. We also assist your company in defining impact measurement indicators adjusted to the Global Goals to assess results.
