SDGXchange is a hands-on strategy tool developed by Dr. Katrin Muff (Thought Leadership at University of Lausanne) and Dr. Barbara Dubach (Managing Director at engageability an organization that provides advice to profit as well as non-profit organizations identifying sustainable strategies for the benefit of all stakeholders).

SDGXchange assists companies in creating outside-in business opportunities through positive contributions to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is accomplished through:

  • Translating the SDGs into local business relevance and prioritizing relevant sustainability issues with the Gap Frame methodology
  • Creatively reflecting and prioritizing based on true business sustainability
  • Co-innovating new strategic business opportunities beyond current business activities for long-term strategic opportunities

The SDGXCHANGE equips organizations with a process that provides guidance and support on how to change from an inside-out to an outside-in perspective, and how to embrace true business sustainability into their core strategies.

The SDGXCHANGE methodology differentiates itself through the GRIPS approach which addresses not only the knowledge dimension like most other methods, but also offers hands-on support and solutions in the activities dimensions.
