Reporting for Progress on the SDGs OR Creating a Vision for Transparency OR….

Collaboration Forum Hosted by GRI, Enel and GlobeScan

Driving Corporate Action Towards Accomplishing The SDGs

A live, moderated, online discussion with Enel and GRI took place on the 14th November 2019 around the role transparency and partnerships should play to accelerate the private sector contributions to the SDGs.

This Collaboration Forum project builds on the success of the Reporting 2025 project, and was facilitated by our research partner GlobeScan.

The SDGs were established by the United Nations as the ambitious roadmap towards a sustainable future. The success of the SDGs hinges on the ability to engage the private sector and unleash their innovative power. Enel and GRI joined forces to answer the question of how the private sector can actively contribute to the SDGs. Key questions  discussed were for example:

  • What is or should the role of reporting be?
  • How does the establishment of partnerships contribute to this process?

The debate on 14th November focused on developing a vision around what needs to be done to strengthen the role of (SDG) reporting to enhance sustainable business practices and how to stimulate new partnerships and business models.

The findings of this forum are open to anyone who shares an interest in or expertise on:

  • SDGs
  • Sustainability reporting
  • Transparency
