The UN Sustainable Development Goals and

On 25 September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the historical resolution 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda means that all 193 member states of the UN have undertaken to work to achieve a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable world by 2030.

The Agenda contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets. In simple terms, the Sustainable Development Goals constitute an action plan for us as human beings, the planet and our wellbeing. The aim is that we shall achieve a sustainable world by working in accordance with and fulfilling the Goals.

With we have created conditions for all companies, be they large or small, to be able to work with sustainability issues in an active and simple manner. We have based our tool on the experience and expertise acquired by our ISO experts throughout their careers, and we have also consulted with auditors and procurement lawyers to ensure that the tool is as comprehensive as possible. We want to make sure that your sustainability work will be exactly that – sustainable.

An increasing number of companies want to be able to relate their sustainability measures to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. That is why we have enlisted the assistance of external experts to ensure that our questions are ideally matched to the Sustainable Development Goals, thus making it easier for companies to relate their sustainability work to those Goals.

Once you have answered all the questions in your profile, the tool generates a sustainability report that provides a clear and unambiguous picture of the current status of your company’s sustainability work, and where there is potential for development. A supplementary report provides you with an overview of the status of your sustainability measures in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals. The tool also enables you to see your current performance and status, and where you have potential for development, in relation to each specific question, and within each specific goal.

With it is easy to report your sustainability measures and show that you are working to achieve a more sustainable world.
