Review Provides Details On How Corporations Build Sustainability Into Business Strategies

Brookings Institution’s “Up Front”: How corporations are approaching sustainability and the Global Goals
George Ingram, senior fellow for Global Economy and Development at Brookings, Mai Nguyen, curriculum and learning designer at 2U, and Milan Bala, masters candidate at Georgetown School of Foreign Service, conducted a review of companies with a strong record of sustainability and discuss how corporations are building sustainability into their business strategies. The authors note, “Companies tend to prioritize [Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)] that align with their core business, rather than taking an all-encompassing approach. Most companies see their contribution to the SDGs directly through corporate sustainability goals and practices” (1/8).
