GeSI’s strategy focuses on three core pillars of impact that align with the SDGs:
- Improving people's quality of life: it concerns the basic human need to live one's life in dignity, with enough to eat (SDG 2), in good health (SDG 3), and with an open and trained mind (SDG 4); flourishing in a world without violence (SDG 16).
- Fostering equitable growth: it is about focusing on economic growth understood as an essential prerequisite for communities and individuals to prosper. They seek a world in which people have enough individual financial resources (SDG 1), where women are enabled to participate equally (SDG 5), where people are engaged in highly productive employment (SDG 8), facilitated by innovative infrastructure and environmentally-friendly industrialization (SDG 9) – while ensuring no one is left behind (SDG 10).
- Protecting the environment: it is about ensuring that the other goals are achieved without breaching the planet’s ability to regenerate for future generations. They refer to the need to ensure a fresh water supply (SDG6), cleaner energy for everyone (SDG7), better functioning and cleaner cities (SDG11), resource-efficiency (SDG12), combatting and adapting to climate change (SDG13) as well as the need to protect ecosystems below water and on land (SDG14 and SDG15).
