Can I post a need anonymously?
More information about how purpose-driven businesses can participate in the 17 Ways marketplace.
A buyer can search anonymously but a user profile needs to be created in order to post a need. A buyer can chose to generate a targeted list of potential suppliers, or the request can go to all the suppliers. 17 Ways suppliers will be notified and can respond to the request.
I am not tracking my progress to any SDG. How can I participate in the 17 Ways marketplace?
You do not need to be an SDG impact business to purchase from 17 Ways sellers in the marketplace. If you want to become a 17 Ways seller, go to the SDG Action Manager at https://www.unglobalcompact.org/take-action/sdg-action-manager and select one or more SDGs to start tracking.
Do I need to be certified to use 17 Ways?
No. Anyone is welcome to search sellers on 17 Ways and anyone is welcome to post a need or a request for purchase. Only the companies that meet your chosen SDGs or certifications will receive an alert that you are looking to buy something.
