Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs: A Principles-Based Approach
Who’s behind it? – UN Global Compact
How can it help? – The Blueprint for SDG Leadership is a comprehensive resource that provides a framework for companies to take leading action in support of the achievement of the Global Goals. It goes through each of the SDGs in turn and highlights potential actions that business can take in order to advance the realization of the goal in question. In doing so it also draws upon instances of best practice and also invites companies to consider to what degree their actions satisfy the five leadership qualities of ambition, collaboration, accountability, consistency, and intentionality.
The Blueprint also underlines the interconnected nature of the SDGs and is useful in helping companies to be wary of the potential of their actions around one goal to have both positive and negative impacts on others.
