SDG Accelerator is a UNDP scheme aiming to accelerate small- and medium-sized Danish industrial companies' innovative work with the UN Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs. The scheme is funded by The Danish Industry Foundation and is being tested in Denmark in 2018 and 2019 with a total of 30 companies, before being rolled out at a Nordic level, followed by a global one.

SDG Accelerator runs over two years and offers the 30 participating companies a unique opportunity to help develop practical, sustainable solutions with significant business potential. The companies work with the SDGs to inspire other companies and highlight how the new global agenda for sustainable development can be operationalised in a business context and create business benefits that are also beneficial to the SDGs.

Along with UNDP, The Danish Industry Foundation, other advisory board members and participating businesses, we look forward to helping plot the world’s course towards a more sustainable development for businesses, people and the planet we live on through SDG Accelerator.
