WHAT WE DO
SDG Changemakers are on a mission to transform the way SMEs and charities do business. As sustainability consultants, we help organisations move to a sustainable economy.
We believe collaboration between the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors is essential to achieve environmental balance, social justice, and economic prosperity across the globe.
We support organisations who want to work in partnership, collaborate to achieve change, and actively involve those most affected, in decision making.
We know that businesses and charities who embrace sustainable development today, are the ones who thrive financially, socially and reputationally, tomorrow and into the future.
We are SDG Changemakers, experts in our field, empowering organisations to understand, embed, measure, and communicate their sustainable development goals and impact.
HOW WE DO IT
SDG Changemakers run workshops and partner with organisations on projects to show them how to embed, measure and communicate social and environmental value. We use the UN's universal call to action, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, as our framework linking them back to local and nationally led initiatives such as the TOMs, SBTi, GRI, ISO, PRI, SASB and the United Nations Global Compact.
We believe that every organisation should have access to effective, affordable and focused support to help them achieve their vision. As part of our commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals, we provide cost-effective solutions to transform, ignite and empower like-minded change-makers.
We also pledge to return at least 1% of our profits to support organisations who are beacons of these values and where our support can make a difference.
By leading with a sustainable purpose, SDG Changemakers is committed to responsible leadership, community-led innovation and financial, social and environmental sustainability.
We already knew what we wanted to achieve, and we could see that our community health work was becoming, if anything, even more important in response to COVID.
Working with SDG Changemakers helped us turn this from a set of ideas into a clear road map. As Chair of the Board, this has given me both confidence and meaningful milestones for our organisational growth. It also means we can help and support the CEO and team more effectively.
This past year has been a very challenging time as we were responding to the demands of COVID as a trusted and continued presence in South African township communities.
SDG Changemakers worked with sensitivity and allowed me to bring together both Board members and volunteers to help me stay focused on our resilience and opportunity to build and grow. I was encouraged and supported to be bold and to bring together those who share the vision for good health as a right for all.
Working at grassroots level in rural Kenya, I rarely get the chance to stop and think beyond the daily needs of the girls and women in our communities who really are 'left behind'.
Working with the SDG Changemakers team helped me identify how to make our work more understandable to funders and partners far away from the villages we work in. SDG Changemakers looked at both our charity and social enterprise and advised on how to diversify our funding from donations to investment.
MADAME EVERLYNE PRECH
Working with the SDG Changemakers team helped us to focus on our structures as well as our vision. We are certainly big on passion and mission and the workshops really helped us to communicate that more effectively.
It also helped me personally to identify the need to form a broader UK Board, to support fundraising, communications and also offer professional advice on women's health. We now have a strong team who have all taken on that passion and commitment and we are starting to see the results for our Kenyan colleagues.
The workshops allowed me the time and space to think about how to apply my professional communications skills to organisations I care about who have more limited resources. I volunteer my time and skills and SDG Changemakrs helped me to think about the challenges and the opportunities for grassroots organisations to be heard.
