Learn how you can set targets, measure progress, and report on your priority SDGs.

Sustainable Development Goals

In this webinar designed to help businesses — and SMEs in particular — make credible progress towards the SDGs, we will:

  • Provide a brief recap of the steps to align your business with the SDGs (covered in our first SDG webinar);
  • Focus on how to select metrics to measure and track your progress on the SDGs; and
  • Discuss the importance of setting measurable targets and integrating the SDGs into your strategic priorities.

You will also hear directly from Geoff Pegg, the Head of Sustainability & Environment at TELUS.

Geoff will share:

  • How TELUS has embedded the SDGs into their strategic priorities;
  • How they selected, track and report on their targets; and
  • Insights that you can apply to your organization.

Following the webinar, we will be sending all registered participants a short guide to help you operationalize what you’ve learned in the webinar to align with the SDGs.

This webinar is the second of a three-part series designed to help SMEs make progress towards the SDGs. In the first webinar, we provided an overview of the SDGs and why they matter for your business, and guidance on selecting the relevant SDGs for your business to take action and report on (watch the recording). In the final webinar, we will focus on how best to communicate your work on the SDGs to your stakeholders and maximize the brand benefits of SDG alignment. We will announce the date of the final webinar later in March.
