Sustainable Development Goals reporting by businesses and organisations

Closes 21 Feb 2022

Opened 13 Jan 2022

Overview

What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

The SDGs are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of everyone, everywhere. The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. They are also known as the Global Goals.

At the Office for National Statistics (ONS), we are responsible for reporting UK data for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In response to a global need for transparency in reporting SDG data, we cocreated and manage Open SDG, an open source, free-to-reuse platform / website for managing and publishing data and statistics related to the SDGs. Currently Open SDG is in use or in development in over 30 countries, cities and places around the world.

How can you help?

We are aware that there is increasing interest from the business community in the UK in contributing towards the global 2030 targets outlined in the SDGs.

We are exploring the idea of providing a new service for businesses and are asking you to complete this short survey to help us understand whether this might be of interest to you.

Our service would sit alongside, and be complementary to, existing third-party sustainability monitoring services for businesses. We are also interested in your thoughts about how SDG statistics could be reported by businesses and organisations.

We will use your feedback to determine the support that businesses and organisations require.

This survey should take around 10 mins to complete. If you have any questions, please contact: SustainableDevelopment@ons.gov.uk
