Business Reporting on the SDGs - An Action Platform

Business Reporting on the SDGs - An Action Platform cover

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) have released a comprehensive action platform with three primary deliverables to accelerate corporate reporting on the Global Goals.

The first publication is the report An Analysis of the Goals and Targets, which aims to help companies understand how they are impacting the SDGs and their targets, and provides a list of indicators to make reporting on the SDGs simple and straightforward.

The second publication, Integrating the SDGs into Corporate Reporting: A Practical Guide, aims to support companies in prioritising, measuring, and reporting on their impact on the SDGs, as well as setting related business objectives. This guide outlines a three-step process to embed the SDGs in existing business and reporting processes and builds upon a suite of existing and established resources, including the UNGC’s Ten Principles, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the GRI Sustainability Reporting Standards.

Finally, the third publication, In Focus: Addressing Investor Needs in Business Reporting on the SDGs, informs investor-relevant aspects of corporate SDG reporting.
