The UNDP SDG Impact Standards for Enterprise is a practical guide and self-assessment tool aiming at providing a common language and a clear system to fully integrate the SDGs into all business and investment decision-making processes. Thus aid the delivering progress of the UN-SDGs by 2030.
The Standards are framed across four interconnected and interdependent themes familiar to all businesses and investors – strategy, management approach, transparency, and governance. Instead of creating a new assessment tool, the Standards focuses on leveraging existing frameworks and specifically deal with the classification, identification and management of material sustainable development issues, those that the Enterprise can make (or is making) the most significant (positive and negative) impacts on important outcomes.
We have designed a self-reporting questionnaire surrounding the three sustainability pillars, namely environmental, social and governance which addresses the Global UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDGs) specifically for the Sustainability Impact Awards for Corporate . The survey implemented the SY model assessed by SGS with relevant clauses of ISO 10015. While using sustainability impact assessment as the framework, it is a recently developed index for formulating integrated policies which take full account of most sustainability dimensions and have been fine-tuned and widely utilized by multiple transnational organisations.
By joining the program, your response will be carefully conferred by a panel of expertise around the globe. All participating corporates will be conferred a certificate, while two types of award will be merited to corporates. Moreover, we will offer help to register your contribution to the UN-SDGs on the United Nation's global registry platform in recognition of your effort.
Corporate Awardees will be bestowed with a list of deliverables in the following:
An award certificate will be issued with the Sustainability Impact Corporate Logo
The new Sustainability Impact Corporate Logo together with the company name will be issued and registered as a new trademark for printing on business card
Partnership with UN-SDGs online platform registration service will be offered to corporates for example, SIIP-UN (https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/partnerships/)
