Abstract
We’re pleased to share that Gold Standard and the Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) Switzerland have published a report, Business and the Sustainable Development Goals: Best practices to seize opportunity and maximise credibility to help the private sector define and deliver against ambitious strategies to help the world meet the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

As Gold Standard has always featured sustainable development as a core requirement, we now see the opportunity to use strong climate action as a way to accelerate progress to the SDGs, which the UN’s 2017 Sustainable Development Goals Report describes as “far slower than needed to meet the targets by 2030.”

The Gold Standard – WWF report highlights the advantages for business in setting ambitious SDG strategies, details the common challenges and pitfalls that companies face today, and offers a clear, actionable set of best practices for business leaders to inform their strategies moving forward.
