Many companies around the world have signed on to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But the key to success lies in integrating these goals into their business models in a way that is productive, profitable and true to their core identity. The enormous breadth of the 17 SDGs and 169 targets could be a barrier for companies looking to integrate them and make an impact beyond business as usual.
To meet this challenge, FigBytes, the provider of software for strategic sustainability and CSR, has now launched a major software upgrade of its FigBytes Sustainability Platform. The upgrade called ‘Version 2.0’ features a new functionality to embed the UN Global Goals framework into their clients’ sustainability and CSR strategies, data, and reporting.
FigBytes has pioneered the development of software that supports strategic sustainability and CSR with their flagship FigBytes Sustainability Platform, by empowering their clients to move beyond Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) compliance to future-proofing their strategy and brand. The company replaces static charts and graphs with cloud-based Living Infographics functionality, allowing close to real-time “data-driven storytelling.”
FigBytes’ Co-CEO and Chief of Strategy, Colin Grant, said that the Version 2.0 software upgrade with its UN Global Goals functionality provides a visually appealing way to unite the myriad efforts undertaken across corporate, governmental and NGO sectors and to move beyond compliance approaches into a new stage of forward-looking, science-based targets. Companies can now embed the UN Global Goals into every level of their sustainability and CSR activities, from data management and reporting frameworks to strategy maps and brand.
FigBytes advisor Michael Meehan said that sustainability and CSR data rarely become strategic because of a lack of technology within the nexus that connects the current trends in global sustainability. That is what makes FigBytes’ approach unique. By connecting data to strategy and brand, FigBytes is taking a refreshing and critical step in making sustainability a key part of every company’s strategy.
