  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts within for-profit companies need to evolve from operating as siloed departments with few resources to a general philosophy that is baked into the company’s DNA at every level. These enterprise-wide efforts could be driven by pursuing SDGs alongside and in tandem with profit.

  • Nonprofits, which already have change-making missions at their core, should, in turn, operate as social enterprises, identifying self-sufficient ways to generate sustainable income outside of traditional philanthropy, which can be uncertain and challenging. .

  • Both nonprofits and private sector businesses should actively partner with civic organizations to enact legislation required to make SDG-related change happen. Government agencies should make it easier for these organizations to get (and stay) engaged by operating with higher levels of transparency and use digital channels whenever possible to cut down on red tape and alleviate blockers to positive societal change.

  • Better redistribution of wealth and resources (both within and between countries); and equitable access to opportunities, information and rule of law, new approaches that build capacities at all level of society are needed.

  • Using a variety of systems thinking and social innovation techniques, organizations can integrate the U.N. SDGs directly into their business models.

  • Universality: The 2030 Agenda is global in nature and universally applicable, taking into account different national realities, levels of development, and respecting national policies and priorities. It is a shared agenda that requires a collective response, with countries developing their own pathways to national targets. 

  • Integration: The 2030 Agenda moves beyond acting as if sustainable development is about three disconnected pillars. Approaches must balance and integrate the social, environmental and economic dimensions, also looking at governance, and interconnect the areas.

  • Human rights and equity: Inequalities are not just determined by economics. To achieve basic levels of goods and services for all; better redistribution of wealth and resources (both within and between countries); and equitable access to opportunities, information and rule of law, new approaches that build capacities at all level of society are needed.

  • Innovation: Innovative pathways are needed to allow countries to leap forward. The acceleration and transfer of technological innovations is a common concern.
