Achieve a sustainable future

SDG & Targets Wheel_complex wheel only.png

The U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an ambitious set of targets, created to fight poverty, inequality, and climate change.

Unanimously approved in 2015 by all U.N. member states, the 17 SDGs are a global "to-do" list for a better future by 2030.

With less than 10 years left action is required from not just governments but from corporations, organizations and other non-government actors.

 

The 17 SDGs are, however, complicated, and cover an intricate web of challenges that even experts have difficulty mapping and demonstrating - especially when it comes to an individual organization's impact.

 

This is where the SDG tag tool comes in.

How it works

The SDG Tag Tool is an online self-assessment and visual communication tool used by organizations to map their actions to the SDGs and communicate their impact.

Assess all your actions in one place

  • Assess any action: from projects and proposals to plans and policies.

  • No additional data on your action or knowledge of the SDGs needed.

Map to the SDGs in minutes

  • The SDG Tag Tool has three easy steps: add your action's basic information then select the tags that best describe your action.

  • Finally, select from a shortlist the SDG Targets most relevant to your action. Simple!
