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 . We’re excited to see how B1G1 Members can incorporate the SDGs in their business.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals have provided us with a fresh way of looking at our projects. Each project listed on B1G1 contributes to one or more SDGs. This categorisation method allows you to discover causes that are close to your heart in the global context. Not only that, you can display the impacts you created based on the SDGs too. That way, you can see exactly how your giving is contributing to the goals embraced by businesses and organisations around the world.
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL (SDG) WIDGETS
B1G1 ties every giving and impact created to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals represent the global community’s next step in ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change by 2030.
You can choose the Goals that resonate most with your business and embed them on your own website. And every time you give through B1G1, the impacts you create towards each SDG are automatically counted and updated live on your SDG widget, just like the impact counter widget.
How the Sustainable Development Goals widgets work
There are 3 ways to proudly display your impacts for your favourite Sustainable Development Goals with the big, colourful icons. Or show your business’ full impact breakdown with the small icons. And if you already mention your contribution to the Goals on your website in a compelling manner, simply use the scrolling impact numbers to add that ‘wow’ factor.
