Achieving Sustainable Development Goals around the world

United Nations Global Compact, Accenture and SAP partnership for SDG Ambition

Partnering to guide and achieve global sustainability

The United Nations Global Compact has partnered with Accenture and SAP, and joined by 3M joining as Patron Sponsor, to help businesses achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Following the SDG Ambition launch, we have released concrete guidance to help businesses accelerate action to achieve the SDG.

The SDG Ambition guides highlight the key steps and design decisions business leaders can take to:

  • Track sustainability performance through core business systems
  • Enhance their impact in line with the SDG Ambition business benchmarks

Accenture and SAP are collaborating to support the roll-out and implementation of the guides around the world.

UN Global Compact CEO & Executive Director Sanda Ojiambo was joined by Accenture Global CEO Julie Sweet, SAP Global CEO Christian Klein, and 3M CEO Mike Roman in a discussion of the SDG Ambition, the impact of technology, and our partnership on sustainability. View the session.

"Through SDG Ambition, we are using innovation to accelerate sustainability commitments that create measurable value for business, society and our planet."

— Julie Sweet, Accenture Chief Executive Officer
