In 2017, Jessica was the PwC global team’s only USA representative in a groundbreaking initiative around corporate reporting on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) . The team provided support to the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, and to GRI, the world’s leading organization for sustainability reporting, which were chartered to create a mechanism to help businesses prioritize and report on the SDGs. Together they issued Business Reporting on the SDGs: An Analysis of the Goals and Targets which provides a list of disclosures and suggested actions for business to take. It also explores the potential gaps and is a first major step towards helping business globally to report on the SDGs in a comparable and effective way.
