Aligning Product With Purpose With the 17 Sustainable Development Goals

November 27, 2020 / By Sarah Santacroce

Aligning Product With Purpose

In this solo episode of the podcast, I’m talking about the 17 sustainable development goals set by the United Nations. I’ve talked about them before but in this episode, I want to explore how they can help us answer some important questions about our products. We know our consumers are looking for solutions and we want to provide those solutions, but what sets you apart from other people who offer similar services or products? Remember, today’s consumer is a more conscious one and they don’t want to just buy something, they want to align with a cause and worldview.

So ask yourself, is my product/service or description of this new program aligned with my passion, ideal client, and my values?

In this episode, you’ll learn about aligning product with purpose with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as well as…

  • What the 17 SDG are
  • How the SDGs can help you figure out how to create your content
  • Why it’s important to know what your focus is
