Corporate action on the SDGs




Two years on from the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), how does corporate progress stack up against the Global Goals? Our latest research has found that whilst awareness of the SDGs has risen, tangible plans and active involvement in collaborations on the Global Goals has slowed in the last 12 months.
Guest speaker Gerbrand Haverkamp from the World Benchmarking Alliance joined us in our recent webinar to discuss findings from our latest report "Accelerating Corporate Leadership on the Global Goals".

Share your views and contribute to new global research


Building on the success of our 2016 report "The Game Changers: Corporate Foundations in a Changing World", Corporate Citizenship is updating its research to reflect current practitioner views on the future of Corporate Foundations, one year on.
Are Corporate Foundations still relevant in today’s world of sustainable business models? What trends are we seeing around collaboration, impact measurement and the role of Corporate Foundations in driving systemic change?
We invite you to share your views in this short survey. It should take no longer than 5-10 minutes to complete and responses will remain anonymous.
