Reporting on the SDGs

Shape the future of corporate reporting on the SDGs.

Why Reporting on the SDGs?

We are at a key moment in the evolution of sustainability; transparency is fast becoming the new paradigm for conducting business. The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have ushered in a new era of global development objectives to tackle the world’s most pressing problems, and the active participation of business is a principle driver in achieving these goals. Best practices for corporate reporting on the SDGs however, have yet to be established.

Take action on corporate reporting on the SDGs

The UN Global Compact and GRI have formed a ground-breaking initiative, Reporting on the SDGs, to address this challenge. Together, we’re inviting representatives from leading businesses to join a Corporate Action Group as part of the SDG Action Platform, to help influence a greater multi-stakeholder movement that will play a pivotal role shaping the future of corporate reporting on the SDGs.

The Reporting on the SDGs Action Platform aims to leverage the GRI Standards – the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting standards – and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact to enable businesses to incorporate SDG reporting into their existing processes, empowering them to act and make the achievements of the SDGs a reality. A special emphasis of the Platform is on making reporting more accessible to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Furthermore, the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is a partner of the Platform, to increase the value of corporate sustainability disclosures for the financial community.

Join the Reporting on the SDGs Action Platform to
  • Access a community of global experts, peers and investors to gain cutting edge insights and help evolve emerging practice.
  • Engage in a corporate learning program to receive expert guidance and identify solutions and innovative ways to report on your progress towards the SDGs.
  • Play a pioneering role in the SDGs journey, participate in key discussions and significant events convened by the UN.

Platform Activities

Companies will participate in the two-year Corporate Action Group (CAG), following a thorough learning program comprised of eight labs, at least six online meetings, and three in-person meetings. The online sessions will be delivered through an online platform that allows the dynamic presentation of content and enables participants to interact.
