Reporting on the global issue solving
The progress on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals is accelerating.
The amount of entities actively partaking on sustainable business transformation and changed business behavior is increasing day by day, and in every region.
But the overall progress of reaching the 17 goals is not moving fast enough. Some issues have developed in the wrong direction due to the two parallel crisis that are happening in 2020. And many companies have lost momentum and motivation, due to focusing on their own survival.
Two Crises – One goal
In the 2020 Sustainable Development Report it is evident that we are in the midst of two parallel crises: The COVID-19 global pandemic, which has led to a cooling of the economic development around the world – with extra effect on the already lesser developed regions. And the climate crisis, which is ongoing and must be actioned on by every single organisation and individual on the Globe.
Furthermore, it is evident that even with the economic crisis that follows in the wake of the global healthcare situation, the sustainable development initiatives must not stop. Continued commitment to solving the issues such as no poverty & zero hunger, education for all and sustainable production and consumption is essential to not loosing the effect that has been built up in the past.
Take a good long look at the 520 pages and find the action points where you and your organisation can support the continued development of the 17 globally relevant SDGs.
The Umbrella Institute will continue supporting our partners and clients with their progress and communication for the SDGs.
The more we collaborate on global issues, the more business opportunities are opened up. Value is created both within the organisations and the people that are supported.
Transparency and knowledge-sharing
Transparency on how the global issues relate to your organisation is very important.
If you are unsure how to get started on the SDG’s, just stay tuned. The Umbrella Institute will publish our upcoming workshops over the 2020 fall on how to take strategic SDG action, and support growing your business even in down-times.
