The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) define global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030 and seek to mobilize global efforts around a common set of goals and targets. The SDGs call for worldwide action among governments, business and the civil society to end poverty and create a life of dignity and opportunity for all, within the boundaries of the planet.

The SDGs explicitly call on all businesses to apply their creativity and innovation to solve sustainable development challenges. Solving these challenges also presents an opportunity for business-led solutions and technologies to be developed and implemented to help achieve the goals.

In this regard, Global  Compact Network Kenya in its mission to mobilize business action for the SDGs calls on its members to share their implementation journeys. We will share the good practices through an SDGs company spotlight series. The case studies will also be circulated widely to our local database of over 5000 Kenyan companies, global network of partners and throughout our social media platforms namely Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
