With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development it is of high relevance to track and assess the contributions of business to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This project is a partnership between the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), WikiRate, and the Bertelsmann Stiftung, to engage the next generation of business leaders in supporting and advancing the SDGs by proactively identifying, aggregating, analyzing, and sharing the achievements of companies in support of the SDGs as reported in sustainability and Communication on Progress Reports (COPs).
By analyzing company performance through annual company sustainability reports and COP reports submitted to the UN Global Compact, students will contribute to understanding corporate sustainability and issues of subjectivity, contextualization of data, and comparability.
Key Environmental & Human Rights business themes (from the SDG Compass):
Risks and opportunities due to climate change
Effective, accountable and transparent governance
Diversity and equal opportunity
Elimination of forced or compulsory labor
As you engage in researching company sustainability performance here, we encourage you to read through and contribute to the conversations below. You can also create threads of discussion on your Research Group page to communicate directly with the WikiRate team and your fellow researchers.
