Working in the Context of the UNSDGs Programme

How to translate global sustainability, needs and ambitions into day-to-day business behavior and adopt new ways of performing business operations in the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Global businesses are widely taking on additional responsibility to include sustainable development at the core of their strategy and decisions. But for real impact to occur, the operational side of the business must also follow along and adopt new, sustainable routines and practices.

Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations have started to mobilize efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries, all businesses and all leaders to improve the lives of people everywhere.

Through the context of the UN SDGs, ViSiR offers a new lens through which to view sustainable development, in order to incorporate sustainable routines in day-to-day operations and in turn create real economic, environmental, and social impact for the world.
