Best Practice ESG / SDG Framework for Associations

Posted in Sustainable Associations

Increasingly, trade, business and professional associations will be called upon to re-equip their members to play a stronger role to advance a sustainable, resilient and equitable future. This is a tool to help put associations and their members on a sustainable path.

The Best Practice ESG / SDG Framework for Associations is a one-page, at-a-glance visual designed for association leaders and boards. It sets out seventeen practices that associations can adopt to engage their members on sustainability, social justice, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and sustainable value creation. There are eight internal practices:

  • Consultation
  • Definitions
  • Information
  • Education
  • Operations
  • Practices
  • Tools
  • Collaboration

and nine external practices:

  • Ecosystems
  • Advocacy
  • Standards
  • Public
  • Goals
  • Innovation
  • Stakeholders
  • Leverage
  • Governance

By pursuing these steps in the Best Practice ESG / SDG Framework for Associations, associations can put their members and society on a sustainable path.
