“A Better Business, A Better World” on November 18

 In Events, News & Updates

Attend our free webinar on November 18 to learn how you can build a better business and a better world by aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

While many large corporations have started to align their business strategies with the SDGs, most smaller organizations have not yet engaged.

In this webinar designed for SMEs, we will:

  • Briefly review the SDGs and why they matter for your business;
  • Explore the benefits of aligning with the SDGs; and
  • Provide guidance on how to select the relevant SDGs for your business to take action and report on.

You will also hear from Tom Ewart, the Senior Manager of Sustainability at The Co-operators, on why they aligned their strategic priorities with the SDGs, the business benefits they’ve seen, and lessons learned that you can apply to your organization.


This webinar is the first of a 3-part series designed to help SMEs make progress towards the SDGs. In the second webinar, we will look in-depth at SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy and SDG 13: Climate Action and how businesses can set goals, measure progress, and report on these specific SDGs. In the final webinar, we will focus on how best to communicate your work on the SDGs to your stakeholders and maximize the brand benefits of SDG alignment. We will announce those webinar dates in the coming months.

This webinar series is made possible with support from Employment and Social Development Canada.
