Do’s and don’ts in engaging with SDGs DO

DON’T

Integrate material SDGs in strategy

Leave them outside the core business

Define potential risks and opportunities

Stop after SDG mapping

Look at opportunities to do good

Only focus on do no harm (risk management)

Define your contribution at the level of the subtargets

Stay at the level of the 17 SDGs

Focus on a limited number of material SDGs

Do everything

Get stuck in the ‘nexus challenge’ or discussions on what subtarget is most suitable

Look at SDGs and subtargets as a means to an end end, use ‘themes’
