Challenges of reporting and assuring progress against the SDG goals

Collaboration is at the heart of the SDGs – these ambitious goals cannot be achieved by one party alone but involve governments, business and communities working together to achieve significant sustainability impacts and improvements to people’s lives. We believe our commitment to partnership and collaboration helps us to achieve extraordinary results even though quantifying impacts and benefits across many partnerships is complex.

We have therefore reported and sought assurance on the progress against the five-year targets that support our SDG goals. We have reported on progress based on the best information we have available, from our operations and those of our partners. However, we recognize that because of the nature of the projects supporting the targets, the data are subject to limitations including estimates, extrapolations and reliance on data and information provided by a broad range of partners we work with to achieve these goals. For certain goals, assumptions are used that could result in an overstatement or understatement of lives benefited when we are trying to quantify performance in challenging environments. We summarize below some key information to provide our stakeholders with some insight into the challenges of reporting SDG goal performance.
