UNCTAD is pleased to announce the launch of ISAR Honours 2020. As its previous edition in 2018 and 2019, “ISAR Honours” aims to raise awareness and facilitate dissemination of national and international best practices on sustainability and SDG reporting. In particular it supports the public and private sector efforts on enhancing the quality and comparability 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). It recognizes policy, institutional or capacity-building initiatives, publicly available at the international or national level that encourage and assist enterprises to publish data on their contribution to the SDG implementation; and assist Governments in collecting such data for the SDG monitoring needs.

We encourage you to submit your initiative in the area of sustainability and SDG reporting by companies which meets the ISAR Honours criteria. We also would be grateful if you could disseminate this information as widely as possible to potentially interested and eligible candidates to broaden the range of stakeholders who could contribute to and benefit from raising awareness of good practices of enterprise reporting on sustainability issues.
