About

This metric covers the goal of the GSC Half-Billion Dollars Challenge in relation to the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This metric indicates the total budgetary allocation towards one or more of the SDGs by each company. The SDGs are estimated to cost US$3 trillion per year to achieve, and much of this will need to come from private resources. Long-term investments are needed in sustainable energy, infrastructure, transport, and information and communications technologies, among other sectors. Showcasing company leadership to support and promote the SDGs sets an example for businesses worldwide.

Methodology

Go to the Half-Billion Dollars Challenge page of the Global Sourcing Council website. Using the dynamic GSC Half-Billion Challenge Progress Barometer you can view a list of companies that have taken the pledge.

  • Click on the tab “All Pledges” to see the total financial capacity that has been pledged to the SDGs in the Half-Billion Dollars Challenge.

  • Click on the tab “By SDG” to view the breakdown of financial capacity that has been pledged to each SDG.

  • Click on the tab ‘By Organization’ to view the list of organizations that have taken the pledge.

  • Select the company you are to research from the list. Then, determine how much the company in question has pledged in total to advancing one or more of the SDGs.
