SDG Impact Standards Training

At Siyakholwa Consulting, we are committed to supporting businesses in enhancing their management practices through the adoption of SDG Impact Standards.  As an accredited trainer for the SDG Impact Standards, we offer expertise and guidance to help organisations align their operations with sustainable development objectives.

Never heard of the SDG Impact Standards?

Developed by SDG Impact – a flagship initiative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) – the SDG Impact Standards are designed to assist investors and enterprises in operating more sustainably and making positive contributions to sustainable development and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our accredited trainers are equipped to lead awareness-raising efforts and facilitate the adoption of the management and decision-making approach outlined in the SDG Impact Standards among our clients and across our networks.

Organisational Benefits

In today’s rapidly evolving business landscape, enterprises and investors are increasingly seeking practical ways to operate sustainably and contribute meaningfully to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  It is widely recognised that sustainable development lies at the core of long-term value creation.  Failing to achieve the SGDs not only constrains economic potential, but also undermines system stability, future business prospects, and investment performance.

Operating sustainably and aligning with the SDGs
offers numerous benefits for organisations, including:

  • Opening up new business and investment opportunities.

  • Future-proofing businesses and investment portfolios.

  • Effectively managing risks.

  • Enhancing reputation.

  • Attracting and retaining employees, consumers, B2B customers, and investors.

  • Strengthening stakeholder relations.

  • Driving innovation.

  • Securing social licence to operate.

  • Keeping pace with – and anticipating – future policy developments.

  • Helping stabilise societies and markets.

Providing businesses with clear guidance and frameworks

Despite growing recognition of the importance of sustainability, many organisations struggle to translate intent into action.  The SDG Impact Standards address this challenge by providing clear guidance and frameworks to help organisations move from SDG alignment to meaningful SDG action.  It is not about considering the SDGs as an add-on to business; it’s about embedding sustainable practices into every aspect of business operations.
