Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, Chairman of the UN Global Compact Foundation, has commended the ambitions of the Islamic Reporting Initiative, recognizing how the IRI will accelerate progression towards the objectives outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Designed to end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030, the UN Sustainable Development Goals are a universal set of goals that UN member states are expected to use to frame their agendas and policies accordingly.
The UN Global Compact is a voluntary initiative based on CEO commitments to implement universal sustainability principles and to take steps to support UN goals.
“Open public reporting is essential if business is to build and maintain societal trust. It is a key part of the commitment to the principles of the UN Global Compact.
So I commend the ambitions of the Islamic Reporting Initiative; by seeking to emphasize and build on our shared values for human and environmental prosperity, the IRI will accelerate progression towards the objectives outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals by leveraging business potential.”
