ODD Ambition is an acceleration initiative that aims to challenge and support participating companies of the United Nations Global Compact in setting ambitious corporate goals and accelerating the integration of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) ) in the management of the main activity. ODD Ambition empowers businesses to move beyond incremental progress and accelerate transformative change - unleashing business value, strengthening business resilience and enabling long-term growth.
The need for ODD Ambition today is clear. The world is not making progress on the SDGs at the necessary pace and scale.
While it is still possible to move the world to a 1.5 ° C trajectory and achieve the SDGs by 2030, it will take urgent, scalable and multi-stakeholder action to dramatically accelerate progress. Businesses need to take a clear stand and show bold leadership to transform business models and economies to become more fair and inclusive - leaving no one behind. This is our starting line as we launch ODD Ambition.
Led by the United Nations Global Compact in partnership with Accenture and SAP, and with 3M as a sponsor, SDG Ambition will empower and equip participating companies of the United Nations Global Compact to develop and implement innovative business strategies that dramatically increase their positive impact on the SDGs. Through local Global Compact networks in over 60 countries, participating companies will assess current performance, identify risk areas, discover new opportunities in business units and functions, and take ambitious business actions to achieve the SDGs.
