Evaluating SDG Progress: Survey Highlights from GlobeScan and SustainAbility

progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

On March 26, GlobeScan and SustainAbility hosted a webinar to discuss findings of an assessment of 400 experts on progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), featuring the following panelists:

  • Kavita Prakash-Mani, Global Conservation Director, WWF International
  • Kris Douma, Head of Strategic Projects, UNPRI
  • Nicola J. Acutt, Ph.D., Vice President, Sustainability Strategy, VMware
  • Aiste Brackley, Senior Manager, SustainAbility
  • Eric Whan, Director, GlobeScan

The GlobeScan/SustainAbility Survey is the longest-running survey of its kind and has tracked expert opinions on sustainable development for over 20 years. In our latest survey, we asked our global panel of sustainability experts about their views on progress made on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), identifying the Goals where experts say that we are achieving the most progress and others that are lagging critically behind.

The lively and insightful discussion on the findings of the survey explored questions such as:

  • How much progress has the international community made on each SDG?
  • Which institutions are seen as having made the most significant contribution so far?
  • Which Goals are seen as being the most urgent and have received the most attention by organizations?
  • How has the private sector contributed toward the SDGs and which Goals should specific industries focus on?
