Special Issue on The Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the UN General Assembly instituted the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment. These SDGs, extensions of the UN Millennium Development Goals, include 17 goals and 169 targets to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all”. From 2015 until 2030, governments, private companies and organizations, are challenged to collaborate to build infrastructure, change business practices, and adapt society to the challenges posed by poverty, lack of education, climate change, resource scarcity, inequalities, and waste, among others.
Marketing Intelligence and Planning is proposing a Special Edition to motivate research into the role of marketing to advance, promote and deliver on the SDGs. What is going on in industry, academia, government and nongovernmental agencies related to the planning, implementation and measurement of the SDGs? Special Issue on Sustainable Development Goals aims to provide insight into existing research, practice and outcomes that could clarify and promote the state of the literature on the following questions:
How do SDGs affect marketing strategies?
How do organizations begin to implement SDGs?
To what extent can the SDGs drive innovation in organizations?
How do government policies support affect implementation of SDG strategies?
Are SDGs strategies initiated from the top down or the bottom up within the company?

How do consumers affect the implementation of the SDGs?
How do competitors affect the implementation of the SDGs?
How can marketing organizations measure the impact of strategies on SDGs?
