Enterprises and investors increasingly recognize that sustainable development is at the core of long-term value creation but are not yet systematically integrating sustainability and impact considerations in their decision-making. SDG Impact aims to help make this process easier through SDG Impact Standards.
The SDG Impact Standards are practice standards, revolving around internal decision-making, designed to transform how enterprises and investors think about value creation, and integrate impact management and contributing positively to the SDGs in their strategy, management approach, disclosure, and governance practices. Grounded in existing principles, standards and market best practices, the Standards provide context for applying other tools and frameworks, including metrics, taxonomies, and reporting frameworks.
In addition to the Standards for Bond Issuers, SDG Impact is developing Standards for Private Equity Funds. and Standards for Enterprises and SDG Impact also collaborated with the OECD in the development of Impact Standards for Financing Sustainable Development (IS-FSD).
