Aligning business to the UN Sustainable Development Goals

If you’re looking for a fresh approach to contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of your value creation process then check out this report recently published by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and ICAS (the professional accountancy body), in partnership with the Green Economy Coalition.

The report, authored by academic Professor Carol Adams CA of the Durham University Business School, has been developed to help organisations enhance their contribution to the SDGs, whilst reducing corporate risk and increasing opportunities that arise from sustainable development issues.

This new publication is centred on the concept of the six capitals, which is a fundamental feature of Integrated Reporting. It addresses how, through efforts to transform the capitals to create value for themselves and for others, organisations can make a material contribution to the SDGs, as well as clarify how they are mitigating or alleviating any detrimental effects.

Included within the publication are a number of best practise examples and we’re proud to see that the Cbus Annual Integrated Report 2016 designed and produced by Twelve Creative is included.
