As investors and organisations pay more and more attention to the effects of climate change, BDS Sponsorship works hard to identify sponsorship opportunities which promote sustainability.
To ensure that our work achieves these outcomes, we align our processes with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set out by the United Nations.
Ambitious in scope, these wide-reaching goals stretch from a commitment to ending world poverty (SDG1) to reducing the human impact on the environment (SDG13).
Perhaps the most significant of the SDG for BDS is SDG17 which is a commitment to strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development. In practical terms, SDG17 emphasises the need for meaningful worldwide partnerships which demonstrate a positive impact on the environment.
At BDS, we are both guided and aligned to the vision set out in SDG17 and have a proven record of establishing the kind of effective collaborations which this area of the UN’s research considers to be crucial to building a sustainable future.
Well-experienced in helping global organisations to fulfil UN Sustainable Development Goals, BDS Sponsorship has a proven record in empowering clients when it comes to conducting sustainable development. From financial to conservation organisations, our team has identified ways of integrating sustainability into all of the partnerships we forge, no matter the industry or size.
In addition to completing a series of environmental programmes, BDS Sponsorship also has considerable experience working with charity organisations as well as businesses in the public sector. Experience in these areas has complemented our work with environmental organisations and has ultimately helped to form a broad perspective of how to form sustainable sponsorship agreements.
By working with clients who share a similar vision and who also recognise their duty to improving the world and communities around them, we’re proud to forge and foster partnerships which bring a clear social and environmental benefit.
