Our aim is to eliminate poverty, make economic growth inclusive and sustainable and to restore ecosystems in cities.

Our model was designed to holistically support the Local2030 initiative focusing on people, practice, policy influence, data and monitoring and financing sustainability - www.local2030.org

Our ethos combines innovation, entrepreneurship and action for sustainable communities.

We are very proud to be a Certified B Corporation® - www.bcorporation.uk.

Certified B Corporations®, or B Corps, are companies verified by B Lab to meet high standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability.

2030hub has worked hard since even before we were founded in 2017 as a northern champion for the B Corp movement and have helped inspire a local community of 30+ businesses on the certification journey.

2030hub is committed to providing 10% of profits and 5% or more of its time through offering pro-bono services that support sustainable development.


Our primary objectives are to raise awareness of the SDG framework and share how it adds value to cities, businesses, social sectors and individuals, both whilst also facilitating additional local impact against the 17 goals, 169 targets and 247 indicators.

We deliver this through our

  • Consultancy services and project management - supporting all sectors
  • Community – a local to global network of like-minded impact makers
  • Campaigning - we actively champion the SDGs and B Corp locally, nationally and internationally
  • Communications agency – promoting and sharing your sustainability best practices
  • Research – mapping SDGs, best practices and impact locally

2030hub is also proud to be the lead and facilitator for Liverpool's SDG Data Platform. This open-source tool is built using the OpenSDG resources and was launched following support from the UK Office for National Statistics.
