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.
