How 17 Companies are Taking On the 17 SDG Goals

Do the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals and its 169 targets seem vital to life in the future? Does the list of ideas and proposed actions also seem overwhelming? The answers are yes and yes. DNV GL, an international certification body and classification society, has assembled a detailed forecast that breaks down the SDG Big Picture into manageable pieces. Its key finding: good progress will be made in some (but not all) world regions, and progress will not be fast enough and will face unacceptable environmental costs. The good news: the report highlights 17 global companies that are taking the lead in making change on each of the 17 goals, including Tata, Danone, ARM, Symantec, Siemens, Marks & Spencer, Calvert Investments, and Unilever.
