What are the SDGs?

On 25 September 2015, world leaders convened to adopt the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They represent the global community’s next step in ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change for the next 15 years. Here at B1G1, we feel motivated by the SDGs too. There is now a greater call for businesses to give back and we’re excited to see how B1G1 Members can incorporate the SDGs in their business.

B1G1’s Response

The 17 SDGs have also provided us with a fresh way of looking at our Worthy Cause projects. If you have been giving through B1G1, you’d know that we normally categorise our projects in 8 main impact categories such as ‘Education’ and ‘Environment’. With the SDGs, we realised that there is even more that we can do. Our new revised categorisation method allows you to discover causes that are close to your heart in the global context.

The SDG Impacts in the B1G1 World…

See how many projects B1G1 currently has to support each of the SDG goals and how many impacts* have been created so far.

*Each impact here represents a small unit of positive difference made by your giving via B1G1 (such as ‘planting one tree’ or ‘giving education support for one child for one day’ etc.). These impacts are calculated by B1G1’s own method. Some of your giving may contribute towards multiple SDG categories.
