Alignment With the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our aim is to identify and work with nonprofit organizations supporting the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a particular focus on improving the lives of women and children, and who have the greatest potential to benefit from coaching.

On September 25th 2015, 193 world leaders unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals outlines a transformative and integrated approach to a just, fair, and sustainable world in which no one is left behind. Goal areas that apply more specifically to children and women include: no poverty, zero hunger, good health, quality education, clean water, and reduced inequalities.

Every company, social enterprise and individual has a part to play in helping to reach the SDGs. As the world’s largest network of coaches, WBECS has accepted this obligation to contribute with expertise and resources, giving rise to the EthicalCoach movement in support of achieving these goals.
