Bringing clarity to sustainable innovation

Sustainability has always been a critical issue, but now there is growing pressure on organizations to take sustainability into account in their everyday business dealings. 

As an active contributor to the United Nations Rule of Law Steering Committee, LexisNexis is proud to have helped set the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) in motion.

And now, with a mapping of global patents to the UN SDGs, we are meeting the growing demand from companies for an unbiased sustainability measure, bringing clarity to innovation and inspiring urgent action to meet the planet’s challenges.
