Businesses are using sustainability to gain a competitive advantage.

How are companies pursuing the goals and what benefits do they hope to see? 

Join UL for a webinar featuring speakers from the UN Global Compact to learn how businesses are pursuing the SDGs. You will see tools such as the SDG Action Manager to evaluate material SDGs for your company and frameworks and services that can help companies take action on SDG materiality assessments to align with the environmental, social and governance (ESG) data requirements of investors and other stakeholders. This webinar is ideal for companies that are just starting their SDG journey.

We will cover: 

•    Overview on the SDGs and their goals
•    Why companies are pursuing alignment with the SDG goals 
•    How to use the UNGC SDG Action Manager to identify material SDGs to your organization
•    The top 5 actions you can take to kick-off your SDG-aligned, ESG-relevant, sustainability strategy
