Since the inception of the SDGs, business has grappled with how best to address these goals in their sustainability strategies. This training will look at trends, best practices, standards and stakeholder expectations and highlight the efforts of companies and investors to integrate SDGs into their strategic thinking. How are SDG metrics becoming increasingly important for stakeholders? What trends can we expect? Do companies give stakeholders the information they need about SDGs? And how should companies communicate their efforts to fully understand their impact and provide an accurate and comparable account of their efforts?
