See how to use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) to objectively uncover sustainable technological development through the lens of patents.

Sustainability is the most critical global initiative of our lifetime. And as it has become a value indicator for investors and a key decision-making component for consumers, there is a crucial need for companies to have a firm grasp on their contribution to sustainable innovation.

As consumers, investors and employees prioritize decision-making based on sustainability, companies, authorities, and regulators are looking for an objective metric to track and report sustainable technological development. To enable establishing a logical, transparent protocol to assess the contribution of organizations to these goals, LexisNexis Intellectual Property has mapped patents to the target indicators of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). 

Learn more about the global drivers of green technology and discover the most important inventors making our planet a better place. Marco Richter, Global Product Leader at LexisNexis® Intellectual Property Solutions, explained how SDGs can be mapped to patents.

During the webinar, we discussed:

  • The global drivers of sustainable technological development
  • Who is investing in green technology
  • The most important inventors making our planet a better place
  • How SDGs can be mapped to patents
