The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a global framework for organisations to measure and report their environmental and social impacts. The private sector, in particular, is encouraged to contribute to the SDGs and report on relevant impacts, however, common disclosure and impact measurement practices are yet to be established.
SDG Impact Assessments apply robust and recognised methodologies to assess, improve and report on organisations' sustainable development impacts. Combined with metrics for greenhouse gas emissions reductions, they give a powerful measurement of organisations, investments, or projects' impacts on people and planet.
How it works
SDG Impact Assessments combine qualitative and quantitative analysis to help companies and investors understand to what extent portfolios are aligned with the SDGs. It includes the following services:
- Quantitative and qualitative assessment of SDG impacts
- Identification of the most relevant SDGs based on your current and potential impacts, locations, sectors and SDGs' relevance to your activities or organisational or investment goals.
- Support to develop frameworks to monitor current performance and future progress, selecting from an internationally-recognised series of metrics, parameters, & sub-targets for each SDG.
- Advice on design of SDG-aligned investment strategies, including effective communication of investments' positive contributions to sustainable development.
