Frequently Asked Questions


What is the SDG2000?

The private sector is critical to achieving UN SDGs by 2030. The World Benchmarking Alliance’s SDG2000 list identifies the 2,000 most influential companies from around the world that hold the power to shape our future. Comprised of companies which collectively hold $36.5 trillion in revenue and employ 97 million people across 85 countries, the SDG2000 is part of WBA’s mission to measure the private sector’s impact and efforts in sustainability with one global accountability mechanism. By benchmarking the companies on this list on their performance on cross-cutting SDG areas, our work promotes a ‘race to the top’; through which leaders are motivated to do more and laggards are held to account.

The full list of 2000 companies is available here. This link is interactive, and allows you to filter each company based on sector, geography and the connection to WBA Allies.
