Business And The United Nations: Working Together Towards The Sustainable Development Goals
PDF File Size: 1.5 MB | Download   
The scale and ambition of the new Sustainable Development Goals require us to be bold and creative in how we work together to achieve them. A great deal has been written and learnt about how business can engage as an equal partner in this endeavour. This report provides a practical framework for how to engage effectively with business in support of the SDGs. It provides a business perspective on what works, what does not and what more can be done by the UN to harness the full potential of what business can bring. The report is composed of three sections:Section I - “The Imperative for Action” : Section I explores the strong case for engaging business in the delivery of the SDGs and why getting involved makes sense for business, too. We present a two-part analysis for understanding why business matters to the SDGs and vice versa.Section II - “The Framework for Action”: Section II outlines a framework we have developed to inform how to engage business as a partner with examples, good-practice insights and lessons learned. This framework is based on two key dimensions that have emerged: the extent to which any initiative is commercially driven and the extent to which an initiative engages others outside the business. Illustrating these two dimensions as two sides of a matrix (right) allows us to plot and analyse specific business initiatives. So for example, a commercial value-chain project delivered with an NGO would appear at Point 1 in the diagram, while a non-commercial, multi-stakeholder coalition to strengthen national health systems would appear at Point 2. Section III - “The Agenda for Action”: Section III sets out practical recommendations for the UN from PSAG and from our own experience of working with a range of other businesses.
