From promise to reality: Does business really care about the SDGs?

Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC)

At the end of 2018 Price Waterhouse Coopers published its report "From promise to reality: Does business really care about the SDGs?” The report analyzes 729 firms from 21 countries in 6 different sectors, assessing their current commitment to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the extent to which companies build them into their strategies.

The report shows that there is still a gap between awareness of the importance of SDGs and actual implementation and compliance. According to this analysis, 72% of firms in the study cite the SDGs in their reports but only 27% incorporate them into their corporate strategy.

The report provides the website address which contains all the data, broken down by country and by sector.
