What are the benefits of the SDGs for companies and developers?
The SDGs facilitate the alignment of corporate strategy with the needs of today's society. They highlight areas of innovation and can help to open up new markets. That is why the topic of opportunities is very relevant in the context of the 17 goals. For SMEs that address the SDGs, benefits can include the following:
Recognising tomorrow's opportunities: more and more innovations arise from changes in consumer behaviour (e.g. share economy), but also from increasing pressure from social enterprises that enter the market with innovative, sustainable solutions. This can lead to a further development of business processes or products in terms of sustainability, but also to the development of new types of solutions.
Attractiveness as an employer: Especially for young talents, it is of great interest whether and how a potential employer takes its social responsibility seriously. Companies that are strategically and credibly oriented towards sustainability goals have a better chance of convincing these talents to join them.
New partnerships and synergies: Working together with others on the success of the SDGs is a powerful, unifying element
Positive reputation of the company: Communicating the company's engagement with the SDGs internally and externally – this convinces employees and external stakeholders and turns them into multipliers or advocates.
There are now numerous sources of information that show companies practical ways in which they can position themselves for the future and make their contribution to achieving the SDGs. In addition, the UNASDG offers support on how the Sustainable Development Goals can be taken into account in the company or how the existing sustainability strategy can be adapted. Contact us and talk to us about your options.
We will provide you with ideas and insights on the different actions you can take with your company to better align yourself and your company with the SDGs.
