The World Benchmarking Alliance
Project led by :
The project develops benchmark that will rank assessing the companies' impact on the implementation of performance of the SDGs.
By virtue of being public, the benchmarks empower all stakeholders, from consumers and investors to employees and business leaders, with key data and insights to encourage sustainable business practices across all sectors. The first set of benchmarks will be published in 2020 and are strongly linked to the transformations needed to put our world on a more sustainable and resilient path. The benchmarks will be developed in close collaboration with WBA Allies, with methodologies published throughout 2019. The first benchmarks developed by the WBA assess companies on key challenges in food and agriculture, climate change and energy, digital inclusion and gender equality and empowerment. The Scale-up Committee of the Paris Peace Forum provides strategic advice regarding process of creating new indicators and improving the methodology behind it. It also helps with the advocacy stream, through the facilitation of connections with key stakeholders.
