Sustainability

FBN International together with the United Nations (UN) has launched the first ever SDG initiative for family businesses - Family Business for Sustainable Development (FBSD). It supports families who wish to align and link their activities to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Pledging your support for FBSD is a great opportunity to showcase your commitment to sustainable development and the global trend towards ESG and carbon neutrality.

The FBSD provides a powerful framework as a family business to measure your SDG impact

Two key aspects are first, it is purely voluntary and a simple way to showcase your commitment and second, anyone from a family business can join the initiative – entire company, individual family members or employees. For more info please visit fbsd.unctad.org

Contribute to the SDGs

This voluntary pledge is part of a global call to action for family businesses and the wider family business ecosystem to adopt a more purpose driven business model.

By signing the pledge, you agree commit to promoting sustainable growth, environmental stewardship, social inclusion, and good governance.
