The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognise that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
At Catalyst our mission is to positively impact businesses and individuals through team building. We take it one step further. Every time someone participates in a Catalyst program we give to one of B1G1's specially selected array of high impact projects.
B1G1 ties every giving and impact created to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. So, by giving impacts we are directly contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals assisting in ending poverty, fighting inequality and injustice, and tackling climate change by 2030.
Being part of B1G1 means that we are part of the movement where businesses come together to change the world. Having our giving linked to the Sustainable Development Goals gives us a meaningful way to track our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals. We use this as a means to guide and inspire us in growing our business in a positive way.
We highly recommend that you check out B1G1. Unlike conventional giving models, B1G1 helps small and medium-sized businesses achieve more social impact by embedding giving activities in their everyday business operations to create unique Giving Stories. Every business transaction (and as a result, your everyday activity) can impact lives from as little as just 1 cent.
For us at Catalyst, it completes a great ‘virtuous circle’: great game design, great impact on all participants and their companies, doing great things; together with you.
