The business value of sustainable development

Much has been made of the role of business in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); not least because the development issues they cover are profoundly shaping the business environment.

The Earth Security Group has worked with SABMiller plc to create the SDG Business Impact Tool: by moving beyond the goals’ headlines and using the SDG targets as the framework, the tool helps companies create a snapshot of the strategic strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in relation to the key development issues covered in the SDGs.
