Business and Industry
NGO Sustainability works with the private sector to promote corporate sustainability. We advocate for a clean energy economy in which supply chains are transformed to meet demand for low-carbon energy technologies, businesses, and industries that use renewable energy and recycle.
Our Corporate Partners
We are proud of our collaboration with our corporate partners. Many of our board members are industry leaders in sustainability and work with our organization to share and promote their sustainable practices. We often host events with our corporate partners that highlight new sustainable technologies and the role businesses can play in promoting a sustainable future. Companies can become corporate sponsors and begin their working relationship with NGO Sustainability today.
UN Global Compact
The UN Global Compact is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. The Global Compact brings businesses together with UN agencies, labor groups, and civil society to work on sustainability issues. NGO Sustainability is proud to be a member of the UN Global Compact since 2011. We believe the growing combination of corporate sustainability and social responsibility is crucial to mitigating the effects of climate change.
SDGs for Business
Our organization works closely with the United Nations to promote sustainable development, specifically the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDGs 8, 9, 12, and 17 are especially important to the private sector.
World Business Council for Sustainable Development
WBCSD is a global, CEO-led organization made up of over 200 businesses that work together to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world. WBCSD seeks to make sustainable businesses more successful so that more companies realize that sustainability is profitable.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to a company's continued commitment to practice social and environmental sustainability. CSR implies the obligation to society and future generations beyond those that are regulated by the government. Some companies will invest in CSR for the purpose of reputation management, sustain profitability, and/or a feeling of moral obligation. CSR is a form of self regulation that uses companies reports to qualify their efforts to create a positive impact on its employees, consumers, the environment and wider community.
The difference between ESG and CSR is that ESG is considered to be a more integrated strategic approach where the company is looking at the Environmental, Social and Governance risks in the mission of the company and how to mitigate them. ESG also has a more precise assessment by demanding metrics of how corporations are responding to climate change, treating their workers, fostering innovation and managing their supply chains.
