    Be one of the first to try Nature Positive’s new SDG IQ tool

    We are delighted to announce the launch of our SDG IQ tool, designed to improve your understanding of how your business is performing against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). We are offering a chance for selected businesses to take an early look at the tool, before we release more widely. If you are interested in taking part in this beta phase, please get in touch.

    Our SDG IQ tool offers you the opportunity to assess how your business is performing in relation to each of the 17 SDGs, encouraging a more holistic approach to sustainable business. It aims to provide you with a comprehensive overview of your direct, upstream and downstream operations to guide you to develop a sustainable business and have a positive impact on the environment, society and the economy. It has been designed to give a particular focus on the four biosphere goals (SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation, SDG 13: Climate action, SDG 14: Life below water and SDG 15: Life on land) that need to be reached to create a stable foundation on which to build a truly sustainable business.

    This holistic assessment of how your business is performing and progressing towards achieving the SDGs will address all of the goals and all aspects of your business to provide an inclusive picture of your impacts, instead of focusing on or prioritising a single action which would fail to capture the interconnected nature of the SDGs. This will enable you to identify your strengths and weaknesses and thus work to prioritise your resources and actions towards the areas that will most help you to become a sustainable and resilient business that will leave a positive legacy for future generations.

    If you would like to take part in the beta phase testing of the tool, please get in touch.

    Sustainable Development Goals

    The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of 17 interconnected global goals that were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. They are considered to be a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. Since their creation, they have expanded beyond national frameworks and are often integrated into business plans to provide a basis for how to become more sustainable and leave a positive legacy.
