The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is a universal call to action to end poverty, protect our planet, and guarantee that no one is left behind, have been adopted by 193 UN Member states in 2015, to which urgent global action among all sectors across the globe is crucial.
Businesses are seen as catalysts for social and environmental progress. However, the challenge is to shift towards an inclusive and sustainable approach of doing business instead of the traditional philanthropy.
In partnership with the International Labour Organization Country Office in the Philippines (ILO CO-Manila), ECOP aims to determine the level of awareness of its membership, not only in Metro Manila but also in the regions (i.e. Cebu, Davao), to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals with particular emphasis on Goal No. 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, and to collate programs that are currently being practiced in observance of and for the promotion of the SDGs.
Responses will be accepted until 06 November 2019 (Wednesday).
Your participation will greatly contribute to ECOP’s efforts in promoting a more business-friendly regulatory environment.
