SDG Industry Matrix
In September 2015, 193 member States of the United Nations adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to make our world more prosperous, inclusive, sustainable and resilient. These SDGs represent an unprecedented opportunity for companies to align their own sustainability goals with broader societal goals.
To convert the interest stimulated by the SDGs into strategic industry activities, the UN Global Compact and KPMG International partnered on the SDG Industry Matrix project to showcase brief industry-specific examples and ideas for corporate action related to each SDG. Presented in a series of publications, each matrix highlights bold pursuits and decisions made by diverse companies for each SDG. These SDG Industry Matrices are intended to inspire greater business pursuit of opportunities which create value for society, as well as for shareholders. Learn More.
