Survey with the Private Sector for the Preparation of the Voluntary National Review (VNR) Report

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is committed to working towards the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030. The national strategy “Saudi Vision 2030” is aligned with the Global Goals and adheres to this shared vision by adopting sustainable development objectives into the national context. The progress made towards the achievement of the 2030 Agenda is reported through several mechanisms, the most important of which is the Voluntary National Review (VNR).

The VNR is a report that presents an analysis of the country’s progress on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Its purpose is to facilitate the sharing of experiences, including successes, challenges and lessons learned, and to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Currently, the Kingdom is in the process of preparing its second VNR. As a part of the data collection process, the experts have designed this survey which is intended to gather the views and perceptions of private sector entities on key aspects of sustainable development. Your participation in this process through the completion of this survey will be greatly appreciated.

The survey should take around 15-20 minutes to complete. To the extent possible, you are encouraged to make reference to concrete examples. We kindly request that you complete this survey by 16th Feb 2023.

The information you provide will be kept strictly confidential. Our analysis and reporting will combine responses; thus, individual responses will not be identifiable.  

Thank you!
