How do companies integrate SDGs into their business strategies? ERM Belgium organized a #Business4Lunch session on the SDGs and the impact on business. Principal Consultant Bryan Hartlin presented ERM’s work completed for the World Business Council for Sustainable Development's SDG sector roadmaps.
Corporate clients and a number of Brussels-based sector trade associations participated in an active discussion throughout the workshop to discuss barriers, enablers and accelerators to implementation of the SDGs into corporate agendas. Participants discussed their unique approaches to operationalization of the SDGs, where they are focusing efforts and how they are measuring progress. The group also discussed how cross-cutting themes such as climate change, biodiversity and people must be interwoven throughout all activities.
