The +Better World Programme, supported by the Sustainable Development Platform (SDP), was developed to help companies to drive value through good sustainability management. It assists companies to improve their performance and to generate bottom line business benefits for themselves and their suppliers through the implementation of best in class sustainability practice. The programme enables organisations to respond quickly and effectively to issues such as climate change, energy efficiency, e-waste management, resource efficiency, circular economy, eco-design, responsible supply chain practices and human rights.
The +Better World Programme is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Progress is quantified and fed-back to sponsoring brands. The +Better World Programme enables a transparent and measured management approach, ensures progress across the broad range of sustainability risks and opportunities and allows good and transparent reporting in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.
The SDP is an online assessment tool designed to help companies to benchmark their sustainability performance against best practice and suggests priority actions customized by sustainability experts. The economic benefits of their actual improvements are quantified and tracked and the progress is monitored against measurable targetsLink: http://gesi.org/sdp/
