The United Nations Global Compact in partnership with Accenture and SAP SE, and with 3M joining as Patron Sponsor, today (Tuesday, 22 September) launched SDG Ambition guides to support businesses in accelerating action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The new guides launched at the opening of this year’s historic 75th session of the UN General Assembly provide business leaders and their technology partners with directional support on measuring and managing sustainability performance through business technology systems and enterprise software solutions. The partners will support the roll-out and implementation of the guides around the world, which include:

• Ambition Guide: Setting Goals for the Decade of Action establishes the initial set of SDG Ambition benchmarks that challenge organizations to set more ambitious goals and targets in the areas in which business is positioned to have a substantial impact. Business leaders can use this document to support their strategy and set goals ambitious enough to deliver the SDGs by 2030.
• Integration Guide: Designing Business Systems for the SDGs presents the approach through which the 10 SDG Ambition benchmarks can be integrated into core business processes and systems to enable effective measurement and management of sustainability performance. Business leaders can use this publication to identify the system opportunities to integrate the SDGs into core business processes.
• SDG Ambition Benchmark Reference Sheets (for consultation) provide illustrative details regarding the steps to integrate each of these benchmarks into a company’s business systems, as well as the key design decision required to engage technology partners.

Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and Executive Director of the UN Global Compact, commenting on the launch said: “The Sustainable Development Goals will not become a reality without greater ambition as well as deeper integration within businesses. By translating the ambition level of the SDGs into concrete aspirations, actions and outcomes for business we hope that these new guides will enable business to have a substantial impact to help the world meet our collective goals.”

The guides highlight the key steps and design decisions business leaders can take to track sustainability performance through core business systems, as well as enhance their impact in line with the SDG Ambition business benchmarks. For instance, the guides show how companies can implement better enterprise-wide data management processes that put sustainability and social responsibility on par with other business metrics and enable leaders to make faster decisions based on an understanding of commercial, environmental and social factors.

“Improving sustainability performance and achieving business outcomes cannot be viewed as separate goals in the Decade of Action together, they represent shared success,” said Julie Sweet, Accenture’s chief executive officer. “Through SDG Ambition, we are using innovation to accelerate sustainability commitments that create measurable value for business, society and our planet.”

Research from Accenture Strategy and the UN Global Compact shows that despite private sector progress on the SDGs, only 21 percent of CEOs felt that business was playing a critical role in contributing towards the SDGs.* According to the UN Global Compact’s annual Progress Report, only 39 percent of companies believed they had targets ambitious enough to fully meet the SDGs.**

“Technological advancements can help turn the world’s greatest challenges into our biggest opportunities and make sustainability profitable and profitability sustainable,” said Christian Klein, SAP’s chief executive officer. “Data and tools allow organizations to step up in collaboratively managing the planet’s limited resources responsibly, contributing toward an inclusive economy, and driving progress toward the SDGs.”

3M has recently joined SDG Ambition as a Patron Sponsor and will work in close collaboration with program partners and UN Global Compact Local Networks, located in more than 60 countries, to lead the implementation of the guides. As the SDG Ambition moves forward, 3M will collaborate with program partners and the UN Global Compact to provide leadership in program development, lending expertise on sustainability goal setting and bringing an advanced manufacturing perspective. SDG Ambition aims to engage more than 1,000 companies across industries in more than 40 countries to focus their sustainability efforts on high-impact strategies and business models.

“Every day 3M applies science to improve lives from fighting the pandemic, to solving global challenges, to leading in sustainability. We’re setting ambitious goals and creating more efficiencies in our operations including our plan to move to 100 percent renewable energy while driving innovations that helped our customers avoid 17 million tons of emissions last year alone,” said Michael Roman, 3M’s chief executive officer. “The environmental and public health challenges the world faces are not insurmountable if addressed by a collaborative, science-based approach. Business has a responsibility to provide leadership, and 3M is pleased to partner with the United Nations and other premier organizations to make the world a better place.”
