About SDG and B Lab
The Sustainable Development Goals are a once in a lifetime opportunity to unite the world around a common purpose of inclusion, fairness and sustainability. The challenge for business is how to operationalize the SDG’s and translate them into something practical and usable.
B Lab, the not for profit behind the B Corporation movement, has entered into an agreement with the UN Global Compact to map the SDG’s to the B Impact assessment to solve this problem.
