The SDGs & Rivanna - Watch This Space

Like many of our customers and supply chain partners, you're probably familiar with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 17 SDGs are at the heart of The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as adopted by all the United Nations Member States in 2015.

In 2019, the SDGs have been front and center for Rivanna.

In April, Rivanna was selected to join B Lab and anchor partner, United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), as a Beta Tester to test an early version of the SDG Platform, an impact management platform based on the B Impact Assessment.  This platform will help companies assess, compare, and improve their performance against the Sustainable Development Goals. We'll be testing the SDG platform in November 2019 and will keep you posted on our progress.

This spring we also had the opportunity to design and manufacture recycled trophies for The Global SDG Awards, an international, private-sector sustainability competition based on the SDG framework.

At the recent 2019 Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) Summit, our CEO, Crystal Mario, took a deeper dive into the SDGs and the myriad ways procurement can advance the Sustainable Development goals.  Over the next few weeks, Crystal will be sharing some insights and lessons learned from this experience.  Watch this space!
