The Tata group known for its corporate citizenship acknowledges that businesses should play a key role in achieving these goals, not only through conventional corporate social responsibility projects but also through developing responsible businesses, identifying business opportunities, creating new business models and improvising products and services.
‘We dream of a better world’ – a unique report published by a global business -- is a documented account of how the Tata group is contributing to the Global Goals. AICL was the partner of choice. One of the key objectives of this document was to unravel the many layers of perceived complexity around the SDGs. The communication approach towards this was to minimise verbosity and present facts using numbers.
Numbers indeed speak louder than words. Each developmental issue was presented through critical statistics and each goal was presented with the rationale of how businesses could contribute towards achieving it. A set of practicable actions are enumerated for businesses to act upon. The Tata group leadership’s keen interest in furthering the agenda of sustainable development reinstates and strengthens the group companies’ concerted efforts in this direction.
