The idea that companies can do well and do good is finding ever greater traction. This is supported by a growing body of evidence linking commercial success with responsible and sustainable business. A study of corporate performance over an 18-year period found that companies who adopted Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) policies, out-performed those that did not by around 5% annually. Research into Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” found that those businesses’ share price outperformed that of their peers by up to 3.8% annually over 28 years.
Most businesses today are engaged in creating wider social value, whether via what used to be termed ‘philanthropy’ or through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) related programmes. Increasingly business is looking to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework for linking and driving commercial success and sustainable business practices.
Midtown BID have identified four SDGs where our members can achieve the biggest impact and value – DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH (SDG 8); SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES (SGD 11); RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION (SGD 12); and PARTNERSHIP FOR THE GOALS (SGD 17).
