Verifiable Sustainability Goals: from good intentions to real impact
Companies are increasingly acknowledging their societal responsibilities. This leads to a growing attention to environmental and social impacts of products and services. Non-financial reporting has become more mature and mainstream over the past years. Yet, it is still facing some challenges related to reliability, clarity and comparability of information.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are increasingly being used a framework to define sustainability policies and structure reporting. The SDGs have been heavily promoted during the past years. The SDGs have the potential to provide a framework to help transition from a focus purely on the outputs of a business to one in which the end outcomes and their impacts become fully considered. Yet, some challenges remain related to how to meaningfully measure progress against the SDGs.
