IMPACT2030 Partners with Better World Leadership to Advance Nonprofit Board Service for Businesses to Advance the Achievement of the Global Goals

New York City, February 6, 2018: IMPACT2030 announces a partnership with Better World Leadership (BWL) to develop human capital for a sustainable world. In a recent study, BWL provided evidence that nonprofit board service is an effective pathway for companies seeking to grow shareholder value by advancing diversity and inclusion, developing human capital for innovation, and fostering economic development to achieve the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). BWL is conducting further studies in 2018, presenting webinars, and convening global companies seeking to establish, enhance, and expand their nonprofit board service programs worldwide.

The Better World Leadership study was conducted by Alice Korngold, Korngold Consulting LLC, with the support and participation of American Express, Dow Chemical, HP, Johnson Controls, PIMCO, Symantec, Datamaran, and the World Environment Center.

“IMPACT2030 is ideally suited to support nonprofit board service among companies because of the strong support from its corporate partners for advancing the impact of human capital investments for the SDGs,” said Sue Stephenson, Vice Chair and Interim CEO. “By serving as the Strategic Partner of BWL, IMPACT2030 will promote its goals to develop human capital for a more sustainable future.”

Anchored by SDG 17, Partnerships for the Goals, IMPACT2030 is a private sector-led organization, in collaboration with the United Nations, social and public sectors, and academia, with the unique mission to activate human capital investments through employee volunteer programs to advance the achievement of the SDGs.
