Why & How to report on the SDGs

On September 6, our very own National Network Coordinator and Contact person Ms. Sarah Issa conducted an effective reporting workshop for our network members on WHY & HOW to report on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In general, Ms. Sarah Issa gave a technical yet beneficial lecture on the COPs and the COEs to facilitate how companies and organizations measure and report on impact and progress.

Furthermore, Ms. Sarah explained how integrating the SDGs into business and reporting processes helps in improving an organisation’s decision-making and driving it’s performance. Likewise, she explained how reporting also helps firms meet the increasing demands from stakeholders — such as Governments, investors, employees and customers.

In the other half of the session, a panel discussion was introduced which reflected on practical examples from leading companies that discussed: how to identify and prioritize SDG targets most relevant for your organisation, and how to define SDG-related report content in alignment with recognized principles and standards.

The Panel was moderated by GCNL Strategy Adviser Hasan Youness and included insightful interventions from the following speakers: Ms. Claudine Feghaly (Banque Bemo), Dr Lara Khabbaz (NDU), Ms. Tracy Bakhos (ITG Holding).

Throughout the entire workshop, participants were encouraged to engage, ask questions and to reflect on how the shared lessons can be applied to their own organisational’s context. 

Ultimately, participants left the GCNL Reporting Training with an acquired set of necessary skills to use in authenticating the impact that their organizations already generate in achieving a sustainable agenda
