Global Goals

Business in the Community (BITC) is working with business to accelerate the pace and scale of action to deliver against the Global Goals, also known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) .

We inspire, engage and challenge businesses to be purpose-driven, taking practical action and mobilising their collective strength to deliver against the Global Goals. Rather than philanthropy, we are focused on how companies can bring about structural and lasting social, environmental and economic changes through running their businesses responsibly.

In 2015 the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) were adopted by the 193 Member States of the United Nations in a bid to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all by 2030. While business engagement with the Global Goals is imperative for the wider world, it also opens business market opportunities, whilst finding shared value for communities and environments.
