We aim to drive the private sector’s engagement in the SDGs through our benchmarks. We envision a future where companies, investors, governments, civil society and individuals can quickly and easily compare businesses and motivate a ‘race to the top’.

WBA identified seven systems transformations that offer a strategic framework to develop benchmarks and identify keystone companies that are vital to achieving the SDGs. This research paper describes the systems that need to be transformed and why. We explain how these transformations are linked to the SDGs and list the industries that are particularly important for driving each transformation. The thinking is designed to inform not only how we benchmark companies, but also how we can practically apply the insights and data from these benchmarks to accelerate the private sector’s contribution.

We welcome you to be part of the transformative change the world needs to see. Please join the conversation:
