BoardClic and the UN goals of 2030

“In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.” 

Promoting responsible corporate governance and sustainable growth is a major cornerstone of the BoardClic vision. Sustainable leadership that nurtures trust, transparency and innovation is proven to have positive impact on work system performance and corporate health, as well as financial and social results overall. BoardClic is proud to contribute to several of the UN goals for sustainable development.

We continuously strive to meet all goals that apply to the space of corporate governance, but some are more applicable than others. 

 

Goal 8: Decent work and economic growth

Economic growth should be a positive force for the whole planet.”

With a heavy focus on promoting honesty and top-down transparency, we offer governance evaluations that are pivotal as a basis to promote decent work. Transparency and clarity regarding values and ethics start from the top of an organisation, which in turn affect the culture, values and ethics throughout the company as a whole. We also pursue expanding the accessibility of digital solutions by actively closing the gap between cost-and-reward of top team evaluations.

 

Goal 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure

“Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation.”

We provide insights that help leaders to clarify their contribution to innovation. This acts as a first step for boards to set the right prerequisites needed for the CEO and management team to reach innovation goals. 

We also provide insights that are aimed at establishing, aligning and improving organisational infrastructure. We believe that transparency and alignment of the top team benefit employee health and, subsequently, corporate health. 

 

Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities

“Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”

BoardClic, a cybersafe digital platform, offers quality evaluations to all companies irrespective of geography, ownership structure or size. That is our way of promoting sound corporate governance for all – not only for those who can afford consultancy services. 

Organisations’ efforts have a direct impact on communities’ attempts to implement sustainability into the daily lives of inhabitants. Hence, we see this as our way of democratising the board evaluation space and contributing to sustainable communities. 

 

Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production

“Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns”

Our question library covers many areas of sustainability, including statements regarding companies’ commitment to sustainable and responsible production. 

With BoardClic, you evaluate a company’s own contribution to this goal. These insights ease the understanding of how ESG matters are handled in top teams and how actions at one company level create better conditions for actions at another level. For example; how ESG is prioritised in the board’s agenda, how the CEO supports sustainable leadership and how the executive team enforces and follows up on the company’s sustainability goals.
