Seventh National SDG Report published on Accountability Day: “Nederland Ontwikkelt Duurzaam”
On Accountability Day, 17 May 2023, the seventh edition of the National SDG Report, “Nederland Ontwikkelt Duurzaam,” was published. Every year, UN Global Compact Network Netherlands contributes to the report. Together with VNO-NCW, MKB-Nederland, the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition, MVO Nederland, De Nederlandse Vereniging van Banken, B-lab Benelux, Groene Groeiers, SDG Nederland and Social Enterprise NL, we wrote the business chapter.
We are halfway the 2030 Agenda. It is time to accelerate impact if we want to achieve the SDGs by 2030. According to the report, the majority of companies are aware of the importance of sustainability and the SDGs and are trying to increase the positive impact they have and reduce the negative impact. At 68% of companies, commitment to the SDGs has increased over the past year, and 55% of companies have increased investment in sustainability.
