Previously, I’ve talked about Microsoft’s commitment to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. This campaign launched on International Women’s Day this year and aims to showcase how Microsoft is taking action and contributing to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. With National Nonprofit Day approaching on August 17, I wanted to reflect on how Microsoft, through our marketplace, aligns with SDG 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.
Why peace, justice, and strong institutions matter
SDG 16 is about promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development. It's about providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels. Now in particular, this goal feels elevated in importance.
COVID-19 has put additional stresses on our economic environment, leaving many unemployed, homeless, and/or struggling to make ends meet. We’ve seen some really innovative ways partners in our ecosystem have aimed to bridge the inequality gaps that have widened in this pandemic. In May, Charlotte Yarkoni (CVP, Commerce + Ecosystems) wrote about how Microsoft and our partners are responding to the pandemic. For a summary of solutions and offers to help available in our commercial marketplace, see here.
