OekoBusiness Wien - SDG!fit

At SDG!fit companies take part in a series of workshops, as well as individual consulting. Upon completion of the programme, businesses have a defined improvement plan based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were formulated by the United Nations in 2015.

SDG!fit goals

By participating in SDG!fit, small as well as big enterprises are introduced to the SDGs. Aims include an orientation of the business model towards the SDGs, assistance with the development of innovative operational programmes and measures to reach the SDGs.

  • The businesses know about their contribution towards reaching the SDGs and therefore towards reaching a "better world".
  • The businesses have a defined improvement programme based on the SDGs.
  • Thereby, businesses can clearly position themselves as sustainable businesses; they can identify and realize SDGs, which helps them ensure a high company value, win new costumers and increase their attractiveness for all stakeholders.

SDG!fit structure

OekoBusiness offers a combination of workshops and individual consulting in order for business to become SDGs fit.

Short-term criteria for success are a description of the initiated process, a documentation of the acquired possibilities regarding the SDGs, as well as a specific action plan. It is beneficial to have documentation of the measures taken or still in the works. In any case, a participatory approach that includes at least all stakeholders within the company should be taken. Upon project completion, a report of the above mentioned contents is submitted to OekoBusiness.

Background UN Agenda 2030

At the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015, all 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Development Agenda, including the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the associated 169 targets. The SDGs give guidelines for sustainable development on an economical, ecological and social scale. The 17 goals can be summarized with the 5 Ps: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership.

An important stakeholder in reaching the SDGs is local economy. In their 2017 study "Better Business, Better World", the Business and Sustainable Development Commission (BSDC) underlined the importance of businesses using the SDGs as a framework within their business model.
