How Do We Do It?

Objective of Step 2:

The Execution of Sustainability/ESG Enhancement in particular is notoriously complex, so executing a well-planned enhancement process does not guarantee predictable results. Therefore, you must prepare a variety of options, from the planned enhancement process to trial-and-error. With each attempt at program, examine what worked, what didn’t, what parts were resistant, etc.

Tasks:

  1. Communicate widely and clearly about the planned implementation, benefits, and who is affected. Answer questions, clarify misunderstandings, and dispel rumors.

  2. Promote and empower action. Encourage employees to get involved proactively with the program, and support managers in providing  direction to staff.

  3. Involve others as much as possible. These easy wins can accumulate into larger wins, and working with more people can help you navigate various stakeholders.

Everyone can claim that they are a sustainable brand, but what matters is how that brand makes potential customers feel. Brands that are truly seen as sustainable evoke an emotional reaction from consumers on a deep, personal level.

 

Loving a brand or caring for a brand does not automatically make it believable. True sustainability for a brand depends on the business walking the talk. 

Without this UN-backed framework, we cannot buy into a sustainable vision of the world. The SDGs also can be aligned with ESG (insights will be shared in Certification Workshop for Tools), which in turn helps companies promote sustainability, philanthropy, and public social impacts.

Without the objectives and facts, we cannot act upon or pass on accurate and useful information. But now we that we are aware of some of these problems, we must reassess for our future and take action.

In an era of sustainability, having a systematic action plan can definitely help to focus on a common perspective, like the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This fantastic list of 17 goals, created by the UN at the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, provides a manageable framework to view the world’s problems.

SDGs are also becoming increasingly important to investors. A PwC survey of global companies revealed the 72% made reference to the SDGs in annual or sustainability reports.

SDG Badge for

Empowering Team Members Works

Most people e.g., customers, impact investors, employees, suppliers, and communities, etc would like to see "Task Checked." Team members can work together (People-Centric Approach) on badges and track badge progress at their sustainability enhancement meetings.

The Badge(s) can be placed on a website, on window, on social media and in an ESG/Sustainability report. Organizations take part will represent the SDG Badge and convey a clear, singular message to stakeholders: "We are working towards a sustainable future."

SN also collaborate with other international service organizations e.g., UNESOC HKA GPC, etc, to present related SDG Badge for future-proof impact efforts performed.
