UN Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals is a set of 17 inter-connected targets that address the most pressing global challenges.

They are a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for everyone, wherever they live and whatever they do, by 2030. Designed to facilitate prosperity at the same time as protecting the planet, their focuses include economic development, health, equality, education, justice, global resources and climate action.

As a certified B Corp, Leap have to score highly in a regular B Impact Assessment that measures our impact upon various stakeholders (including the environment, our team, customers and community). The B Impact Assessment Indicators have been mapped against the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (and their underlying targets and indicators) to allow businesses to understand and measure their efforts to deliver on the goals. At Leap we are committed to considering and incorporating the Sustainable Development Goals into our work.

Working with fellow B Corp One stone advisors the team chose 5 key SDGs for the business that we felt we could have the most impact in. These are:

7. Affordable, clean energy

8. Decent work and economic growth

12. Responsible consumption and production

13. Climate Action

17. Partnership for the goals.

We have used the SDG action manager to help set goals and actions, plus use fellow B Corps Futerra’s easy guide to the SDGs to help make our actions easy to understand.
