Spotlight

THE SDG CIRCLE COMMUNITY

We believe that relational, cross-silo collaboration is essential to building omniwin partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To facilitate that, we created a community of the like-minded, called The SDG Circle.

As a community of brand leaders, institutional donors, impact investors and SDG solution-makers, we participate in some of the world’s most celebrated events relating to socio-economic and environmental impact — and we even help host events all our own. We also work to serve each SDG Circle member with services and experiences personalized to them and their lifework agenda.
