Chambers Ireland Supports the Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Chambers Ireland have been appointed as an SDG Champion in the 2023-2024 SDG Champions Programme. This initiative aims to enhance public awareness of the SDGs and demonstrate that everyone in society can contribute to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This designation recognises the leading role played by the Chamber Network in achieving the SDGs.

The role of an SDG Champion is to act as an advocate and promoter of the SDGs and as a good practice example of how a business can contribute to the SDGs and integrate the SDGs into their work and activities.

In support of this Chambers Ireland have created an SDG Toolkit to help businesses start their journey to sustainability.

These Goals are an urgent call for action which acknowledge the importance
of partnership between all developed and developing countries. The SDGs recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality and spur economic growth while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans forests. Businesses around the world must play their part.

In September 2019, to mark the fourth anniversary of the launch, Chambers Ireland and ICC Ireland, together with our nationwide Network of affiliated Chambers, unanimously pledged to support the Goals. Since then, we have worked with our Chamber Network and our Sustainable Business Council to help to educate the 8,000 businesses they represent about the SDGs. Our aim in highlighting the SDGs is to realise the opportunities they create, provide companies with the confidence that meaningful results can be readily achieved and promote how they will positively impact businesses, communities, and livelihoods.
