The specific objective of the project is to positively ‘narrate’ sustainable development in order to promote co-planning actions. It is therefore necessary to proceed with the identification of elements to understand and formalize in a clear, rigorous and disseminable way what good practices consist of, replicable elements to activate system actions. In the process of mapping, it is important that we do not stop at ‘goodness’ or ‘success’ in the rhetorical sense.
A good practice can be evaluated through these requirements:
-relevance/added value: the way in which the practice is important to stakeholders, the extent to which it has created solutions to problems, enabled stakeholders to achieve expected benefits;
-innovation: the ability to produce new, creative and qualitatively coherent solutions to improve the initial conditions or the satisfaction/solution of the original need/problem and the improvement of the quality of services/protection of rights;
-impact/sustainability: the reliance on existing resources or the ability to generate new resources, but also the stability of benefits and outcomes achieved over the long term and the promotion of participation);
-gender approach: the taking into account of gender aspects, i.e. making visible, identifying and considering the specific circumstances, needs and problems of women;
-replicability: the possibility of the practice to have transferable characteristics beyond the differences of contexts; to be widespread and known; to be shared with policy makers.
After taking an in-depth look at the global context and the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis on the realization of the 2030 Agenda, the document collects and analyses good practices adopted by member and non-member companies that are committed to pursuing one or more Sustainable Development Goals. The handbook stems from Impronta Etica’s Working Group “SDGs for Companies:
Innovation Opportunities and Impacts on Business” which first published a document on the results of the processes undertaken by members. Later, in 2020, Impronta Etica further developed the document, integrating the best practices that emerged from a survey conducted with around 50 companies.
Edu203 is a catalyst and the replicability of the project content is therefore key to ensuring the programme’s effectiveness in bringing about positive results.
