Accountable Impact advises policy makers, public administrators, corporate leaders and key city stakeholders on strategic solutions on issues faced by cities. Our mission is aspirational, objective and laser-focused on targeted systems change by presenting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a blueprint for the future.

Our role is critical in introducing the concept and framework of sustainable development to city and business leaders. Our goal is to showcase evidence to build a clear business case for adopting the SDGs locally. We do this work through a range of concrete, practical and adaptable mechanisms and instruments that support the development, implementation, monitoring and review of locally-appropriate SDG actions.

We believe that the SDGs present a roadmap to become a sustainable city. Ultimately, the goal is to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations.
