NEW YORK, September 22, 2021 /3BL Media/ - The Transforming Lives and Communities Report from IMPACT2030 explores how companies are channelling pro-bono, skills-based and hands-on employee volunteer service to help address the global challenges that the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) seek to remedy—ending poverty, fighting inequality and tackling climate change.

The Report highlights what can be achieved when community engagement and employee volunteer service programs are integrated throughout a company’s culture and business functions—with impact data and results tied to business priorities. The companies featured in the Report are (alphabetically):

Anglo American Google Pfizer
Bank of America Hasbro PwC
Berkshire Bank  Iberdrola   SAP
Citi  Johnson & Johnson Singtel
DirecTV  Linklaters TCS
DP World Medtronic TD Bank
    UPS

With the pandemic curtailing in-person employee volunteer engagement, the Report also highlights how companies have expanded virtual skills-based volunteer service models, broadening opportunities for their people to engage in new and substantive ways to support racial, health, gender, and environmental justice.” said Sue Stephenson, Co-Founder of IMPACT2030.

“The effective achievement of the 2030 Agenda, no matter how ambitious or transformational, would be limited without well-facilitated engagement by the private sector and its people,” said William Kennedy, Senior Programme Officer, United Nations Office for Partnerships. “By activating the skills and expertise of their employees through volunteer action, companies around the world are contributing a dynamic and vital resource to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.”
