At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on September 25, 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which includes a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030. More and more companies are signing on to reach the SDGs through corporate actions such as reducing water, curtailing emissions, enacting better labor practices and more.
One key way to scale corporate social and environmental programs is to partner with organizations that are already building traction and strong foundations in reaching the SDGs. To help the Sustainable Brands® community build the strongest and most effective partners, we’ve compiled a list of NGOs that are each focused on the SDGs.
This collection lists each of the 17 SDGs and several corresponding NGOs that focus on each of the goals. Such a compilation will encourage flourishing partnerships between the private and non-profit sectors, and ultimately help to reach the UN’s ambitious Sustainable Development Goals.
