ACCELERATING BUSINESS ACTION TO ADVANCE THE SDGS IN MIAMI

SDG Impact Pledge Launch

MIAMI COMPANIES CAN LEAD THE WAY

Companies committed to Do WELL by Doing GOOD

There is growing understanding – especially by business leaders and investors ahead of the curve – that it is not enough for companies to concern themselves only with short-term profits because natural disasters, social unrest or economic disparity can damage long-term prosperity. The businesses that understand this challenge and take action will be a step ahead.

Sustainability meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) represent a global strategy for achieving economic growth that is consistent with the planet’s resource capacity, society’s basic needs and priorities.

THE PLEDGE

The SDG Impact Pledge presents the SDGs framework at an introductory level for companies that want to pioneer change and integrate business sustainability strategies into their business model.

The program is designed as a Community of Practice to share knowledge, learn, innovate, and find solutions to local and regional issues.
