The aim of the Global Compact International Yearbook is to create a global overview of the achievements of the UN Global Compact (UNGC). The book offers proactive and in-depth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders around the world and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles. Thus the publication helps to advance transparency, promotes the sharing of best-practices, and, perhaps most significantly, gives a strong voice to the regional and global actors that are at the heart of the initiative.



Operationalizing sustainability targets: The sustainable value approach

Over the last decades, sustainability has been accepted by policymakers and corporate managers alike as a relevant and legitimate goal. In this context, the current UN-level efforts to formulate sustainable development goals (SDGs) can be expected to further consolidate the sustainability agenda and to help relevant actors address today’s key global sustainability challenges. From a corporate perspective, a universally acknowledged set of SDGs will provide valuable pointers regarding areas that need to be prioritized within the wide range of sustainability-related aspects. However, in order to translate these high-level SDGs into organizational practice, corporate decision-makers require tools for operationalizing sustainability performance and sustainability targets.
