Staffordshire Chambers to support local businesses with new SDG spotlight

Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce will be supporting local businesses to work toward Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a series of videos, blogs and workshops.

The SDGs are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a more sustainable future for all”. There have been sustainable goals in development under different guises since 1992. In 2015, all UN Member States signed a resolution to adopt the 17 SDGs that we know today. In 2020, the UN named the following ten year period as the ‘Decade of Action’ – with the goals intended to be achieved by 2030.

We’ll be highlighting specific SDGs each month to help guide our members through some manageable and effective changes that they can make to their businesses.

Chambers CEO Sara Williams said: “I am proud to say we have done an enormous amount of work internally to develop our own views on the SDGs and how we can use them as a business development tool.

“We hope to build a set of tools, activities and videos that businesses around Staffordshire can use to highlight how they are contributing toward the SDGs, how they want to work towards doing more and how they can maximise their impact for people, profit and planet. This is our commitment to you as part of SDG17 – Partnerships for the Goals.

“SDG’s are important because they help businesses to attract new talent and investment, and most importantly, will become what customers, clients and suppliers expect from really go-ahead and dynamic businesses.”
