The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 & Sustainability Strategy  

As more organisations adopt the SDGs globally, the impetus on corporations to report non-financial information in the context of broader societal goals increases. The SDGs present vast opportunities to improve reporting for organisations and enhance performance by promoting the integration of sustainable development into ever-changing business models.  The SDGs & Sustainability Strategy training session will provide a strategic approach and practical knowledge to participants on how to adopt, align and integrate the 17 SDGs into their Economic, Environmental, Social and Governance material issues and ultimately into your sustainability / business strategy.

This course will focus on equipping participants with the capacity to effectively identify and contextualise material issues within broader global goals, in order to improve reporting. Case study examples of organisations using imaginative ways integrate global goals in their designing of effective policies and strategies will be provided.

The SDGs and Sustainability Strategy Course will aim to advance:

  • Introduction to the SDGs 2030;
  • The SDGs synergies with current reporting frameworks such as GRI;
  • Leveraging resources for integration into non-financial reporting and sustainability strategy;
  • Sharing experiences and peers collaboration & networking;
  • Learning about best practices.
