ISAR Honours 2018

We are pleased to announce the launch of our new initiative entitled “ISAR Honours”. It aims to support efforts on enhancing the quality of companies’ reporting on their contribution to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and its usefulness for monitoring the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

ISAR Honours will be awarded to policy, institutional or capacity-building initiatives in member States that facilitate improvements in companies’ reporting on sustainability issues, including by promoting the integration of sustainability information such as environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into companies’ reporting cycle, as well as good practices on publishing and collecting data on companies’ contribution to the attainment of the SDG. ISAR Honours will help to raise awareness of achievements as well as challenges in this important area.

The objective of the ISAR Honours is to raise awareness and facilitate dissemination of national best practices on sustainability and SDG reporting. The ISAR Honours will recognize policy, institutional or capacity-building initiatives in member States that encourage and assist enterprises to publish data on their contribution to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In this regard, we call for nominations of public and private sector initiatives and good practices which meet the ISAR Honours criteria. Nominations for the ISAR Honours are welcome until 23 June 2018. In order to make a nomination, please consult additional details here, and fill the Nomination form. Nominations should be sent to isar@unctad.org.

The final results of the ISAR Honours will be unveiled during the thirty-fifth session of ISAR, which will take place from 24 to 26 October 2018 Geneva. For further information and registration, please click here.
