The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are at the core of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. They provide a framework to tackle the most complex issues of our time; end poverty, reduce inequality, promote good health and economic growth whilst also combatting climate change. This agenda aims to leave no one behind; creating partnerships and driving cross-sector collaboration to meet the significant global environmental and social challenges we are facing.
Governments have committed. It is now time for businesses to contribute.
Today, employees, customers, and investors want to work for, buy from and invest in a company that has considered its environmental impact and prioritises social responsibility.
Align corporate climate action to global goals
Incorporating environmental, social and governance goals into your wider strategy will help you to manage emerging reputational, climate-related and social risks your company is facing. With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) providing both revenue-generating and cost-saving opportunities to these global social and environmental problems.
Many companies have already started incorporating the SDGs into their non-financial and wider strategic reporting. However, declaring a commitment to the SDGs or selecting certain SDGs that look “about right” or “somewhat aligned” to current climate action is not enough. The next 10 years will be the most crucial years in modern human times, in ensuring earth’s temperature doesn’t rise, in safeguarding our natural environment, our species, our future and future generations to come. With less than a decade left to achieve these goals, words are no longer enough. It is now time to take action.
Communicating purpose through the SDGs
At Avieco we get that prioritising these goals can be challenging, involving both senior stakeholders with a long-term vision for your business and the stakeholders who will be involved in the action on the ground. Requiring you to align your business strategy and your material social and environmental impact areas and create an integrated action plan that pays more than lip service to this agenda.

I was impressed with the thoroughness and level of detail that our data set was analysed in. Presenting an extensive data set in an easy to use format was of great value in communicating the outcome of the work internally, and prioritising areas of the supply chain for future action.
Alan Sweeting, Global Health, Safety and Environment Senior Manager, Allen & Overy LLP
Avieco supported us in collating and organising data to develop a robust risk assessment process. They have been easy to work with, responsive to our requirements and pragmatic in their solutions.

Avieco have helped us increase our transparency and identify areas where we can have the greatest impacts for carbon emissions reduction. They have always tailored their approach to suit our business needs and made time for us so it has never felt like we are ‘one of many’.
Jess Blincow, Corporate Responsibility Advisor, ASOS
Avieco has been the preferred environmental consultant since the beginning of our journey to become a sustainable company. Dentsu Aegis has worked with Avieco’s experts on various areas, such as carbon footprint reporting and assurance support, and recently also advised us how to switch our global network to renewable electricity. The team’s expertise on environmental sustainability is impressive, and the work delivered is always of highest standard.
Lars Holm, Global Senior Manager CSR, Dentsu Aegis Network
Avieco informatively led us through the processes needed to reduce our carbon footprint. With their clear and concise advice we have been able to effectively reduce our energy and waste levels. Avieco made the complex notion of energy efficiency into a manageable and achievable reality
Nigel Pink, Group Engineering Manager, Dominos UK & Ireland Ltd
Avieco delivered exactly the workshop we needed to get our sustainability team and regional leads on the same page when it comes to ‘market-based’ reporting. It’s a challenging area to tackle for a global business – particularly when we operate in a number of markets where there is little or no choice in terms of energy purchasing. Avieco has given us the knowledge and tools to ensure we get our disclosures right – they really exceeded my expectations for what we could achieve in one afternoon!

We get that change is not easy. But we must be brave, challenge old ways, set new habits, embrace new thinking.
