Sweet 17 or a more mature approach? How SDGs and Materiality Assessment complement each other
17 aspirational Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that should transform the world we live in. The SDGs have attracted unprecedented interest from companies, investors and policy-makers. Despite this, many businesses and organisations remain overwhelmed by the challenge of applying them in a tangible business context.
