On May 20, 2021 WEC hosted the Virtual Workshop: “How can Business Collaborate to Achieve Meaningful Impact on Advancing SDGs?” in collaboration with ERM and Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.

Since the adoption of the SDGs in 2015, the business community has underlined its support for them, understanding that not just government but all stakeholders together bear responsibility to reach them. Through an exchange of thoughts and practices between global companies, WEC supports business to

  • Evaluate the value of the SDGs for companies
  • Share practices on how companies work with the SDGs
  • Optimize companies’ contribution to the SDGs and find adequate means to measure impact
  • Take responsibility for specific SDGs and work with business, governments and civil society to achieve them

Business experts from eight industries in Germany, Ireland, Mexico, UK, and the USA joined the Virtual Workshop to share their advances on working with the SDGs.
