The SDG Tool is a UN-approved plugin that allows you to seamlessly integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into any website.
What are the SDGs again?
The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 global goals adopted by the UN in 2015. They provide a roadmap for collectively addressing key global challenges by 2030.
The SDGs build on the successes of the previous Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), but go beyond them by not only focusing on developing countries, but globally addressing the economic, social and environmental dimensions of sustainability.
Why are the SDGs so important?
They serve as a rallying point for global action and provide a roadmap for transforming our societies and protecting our planet for current and future generations.
The goals are intended to work together in an integrated way and call on governments, businesses, civil society and individuals alike to work together to create a better future for everyone on the planet. Achieving the SDGs is not just a goal, but a necessity for the well-being of humanity and the health of our planet, to ensure that no one is left behind in the pursuit of a more sustainable and equitable world.
SDG 1: No Poverty
The goal of the first SGD seeks to eradicate poverty in all its forms.
By 2030, the number of people living in extreme poverty (i.e. living on less than US$2.15 per day) is to be reduced by at least half. The focus is on ensuring that all people have equal rights and opportunities when it comes to accessing basic services, education, healthcare and social protection.

Alignment of business activities
Aligning business activities with the SDGs means that companies consciously align their operational processes, decisions and initiatives to support the United Nations Global Sustainability Goals. This includes identifying the relevant SDGs that best align with corporate values and activities, and integrating these goals into strategic planning and implementation.
The integration of sustainable methods in the company involves the implementation of various measures. These include reducing waste generation and energy consumption, advocating environmentally friendly packaging solutions, and implementing responsible procurement practices. Likewise, implementing steps to ensure fair working conditions and support diversity and inclusion can be considered as part of this approach.
Transparency and reporting
The company’s sustainability efforts and progress toward the SDGs are clearly disclosed. Regular reporting on sustainability performance takes place, highlighting both successes and areas that can still be optimized.
and above all:
Demonstrate active participation in the SDGs and inspire audiences to take action on these goals as well. Collectively creating a robust network of influencers will drive the promotion of positive initiatives.
Demonstrate commitment to the SDGs and inspire audiences to join the cause. Through this, companies gain the trust and connection of customers and stakeholders who share similar values and are committed to a sustainable future.
