The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have become the global priorities to solve the problems of humanity and the planet face. These were approved at the United Nations Summit in September 2015 where the member states of the UN agreed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Since 2015, governments, civil society, academia and the private sector have focused and adjusted their actions to contribute to the fulfillment of the SDGs. Doing so implies a retrospective and prospective evaluation of the sustainability of the actions carried by each individual and organization.
SDG mapping is a tool that supports organizations to identify and align their actions with the 17 SDGs and thus contribute to their global and local attainment. For the mission of aligning an organization with the 17 SDGs and their more than 150 associated goals, ALLCOT establishes a diagnosis and a road map, after confirming or reorienting specific actions that the organization has already taken.
SDG Mapping can be applied to public and private organizations regardless of the advancement of their sustainability strategy:
- Leading organizations in sustainable development- Organizations that need to boost or improve their sustainable development.
- Organizations becoming involved in the measurement of their sustainable development.
In all cases the mapping process uses the following methodologies:
- Risk analysis.
- Materiality Analysis.
- Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs of the UN Global Compact.
- SDG Compass, the guide for business action in sustainability.
Identify the quantitative and qualitative contribution level of your organization to the attainment of the SDGs at the local, national or sector level.
- Design the sustainability strategy of each individual, project, organization or sector.
- Identify strengths and opportunities of alignment each organization’s growth objectives and the fulfillment of the SDGs.
