Navigate the SDGs and put yourself at the cutting edge:

Climate Week and the Launch of the SDG Compass

This September marks a critical moment for sustainable development. From the 21st to the 28th, all eyes will be fixed on New York City for Climate Week. Between the 25th and 27th, the UN General Assembly is set to launch the highly anticipated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015. The SDGs will effectively determine the international development framework for the next fifteen years.

Unlike the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the new SDGs explicitly call on businesses to innovate and help solve sustainable development challenges. As the world realigns itself with this new framework, it will be imperative for companies to understand, prioritize and embed the SDGs into the core of their businesses.

Many businesses are asking how they can do this. We're excited to be launching a unique guide that can help - the SDG Compass - immediately after the release of the SDGs. The Compass will help business align its strategy with the SDGs, and provide tools for managing and measuring progress along the way. Keep a look out for the Compass on 26 September, and make sure your business is among the first to benefit.

For more information on the SDG Compass after the launch, please visit sdgcompass.org.
