SDG Changemakers
Organisation

We are on a mission to transform the way SMEs and charities do business, moving us to a sustainable economy.

We believe collaboration between the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors is essential to achieve environmental balance, social justice, and economic prosperity across the globe. We support organisations who want to work in partnership, collaborate to achieve change, and actively involve those most affected, in decision making.

We know that businesses and charities who embrace sustainable development today, are the ones who thrive financially, socially and reputationally, tomorrow and into the future.

SDG Changemakers run workshops and partner with organisations on projects to show them how to embed, measure and communicate social and environmental value. We use the UN's universal call to action, the 17 Sustainable Development Goalds (SDG), as our framework linking them back to local and nationally led initiatives such as the TOMs, SBTi, GRI, ISO, PRI, SASB and the United Nations Global Compact. 

We believe that every organisation should have access to effective, affordable and focused support to help them achieve their vision. As part of our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, we provide cost-effective solutions to transform, ignite and empower like-minded change-makers. 

We also pledge to return at least 1% of our profits to support organisations who are beacons of these values and where our support can make a difference.

By leading with a sustainable purpose, SDG Changemakers is committed to responsible leadership, community-led innovation and financial, social and environmental sustainability.
