Ambition Guide: Setting Goals for the Decade of Action establishes the initial set of SDG Ambition benchmarks that challenge organizations to set more ambitious goals and targets in the areas in which business is positioned to have a substantial impact. Business leaders can use this document to support their strategy and set goals ambitious enough to deliver the SDGs by 2030.
Integration Guide: Designing Business Systems for the SDGs presents the approach through which the 10 SDG Ambition benchmarks can be integrated into core business processes and systems to enable effective measurement and management of sustainability performance. Business leaders can use this publication to identify the system opportunities to integrate the SDGs into core business processes.
SDG Ambition Benchmark Reference Sheets (for consultation) provide illustrative details regarding the steps to integrate each of these benchmarks into a company's business systems, as well as the key design decision required to engage technology partners.
The guides highlight the key steps and design decisions business leaders can take to track sustainability performance through core business systems, as well as enhance their impact in line with the SDG Ambition business benchmarks. For instance, the guides show how companies can implement better enterprise-wide data management processes that put sustainability and social responsibility on par with other business metrics and enable leaders to make faster decisions based on an understanding of commercial, environmental and social factors.
