Our journey to #BuildFor2030 together

As a partner to the United Nations, we’ve pledged to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—a set of 17 initiatives adopted by member states in 2015 focused on impacting the world for good by 2030.

To help accelerate progress towards these SDGs, earlier this year we launched the #BuildFor2030 campaign. This campaign highlights Microsoft partners whose technology solutions align with the SDGs, bringing us all a step closer to powering a more inclusive economy.  

Looking back on our first year of #BuildFor2030

We thank and celebrate partners who participated in the first year of our #BuildFor2030 campaign. We are proud of our collective work promoting and furthering many of the SDGs.

We recognized female-founded partner organizations on International Women’s Day in support of SDG Goal 5: Gender equality.

Partner spotlight: Co-founded by Carol Grow, COO, LawToolBox delivers modern solutions for legal professionals in Microsoft Office 365 by using smart scheduling to help reduce risk and increase productivity. By calculating and calendaring complex court deadlines directly in Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Teams, the LawToolBox solution helps customers easily and methodically manage litigation and compliance deadlines with confidence.

We recognized partners supporting our first responders and healthcare workers and institutions while celebrating the UN General Assembly’s historic 75th session.

Partner spotlight: The COSUP project operates 17 drug treatment centers in South Africa, but there was concern that patient numbers would fall due to issues related to COVID-19. Phulukisa Health Solutions designed a COVID-19 screening solution to rebuild trust between patients and healthcare workers, which has enabled the COSUP project to continue serving patients and improving lives in the communities they serve.
