The Context

The theme of the 5th Annual Conference of CRB is ‘Collaboration a key to SDGs: Leveraging CSR & Voluntary Sustainability Standards’. As an organisation working in the areas of sustainable development, CRB believes collaboration is fundamental to achieve these ambitious and critical Goals (SDGs) – and its time now to assess various approaches in this direction and impacts thereof.

Collaboration is at the heart of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is enshrined in the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development as of one of the 5 Ps – Partnership. Presently, one can witness a variety of collaboration models/methods that have evolved for broadly pursuing the SDGs, or specifically one or more SDG Goals. These models/methods range from the global levels to the national and local levels.
