About Us

SDG logo

In 2015, all United Nations Member States developed a blueprint, The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, “for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future”. At the heart of this strategy are the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our work focuses on helping organizations that share a common belief in one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals, through creative and driven marketing approaches, specifically in the areas of social good & innovation. We “recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests”.
