Abstract: With the deadline for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) only five years away, questions were raised as to the effectiveness of the private sector in influencing progress towards their achievement. This study, commissioned by the Netherlands National Committee for International Cooperation and Sustainable Development (NCDO), assesses the contributions of 20 companies towards influencing the MDGs, goals which capture the key elements of poverty reduction. The current study used the MDG Scan, an online tool designed to assist the measurement of the actual impact of company efforts towards influencing the MDGs. In particular, the Scan estimates the number of people that benefited from a company’s activities per MDG in each of the developing countries in which it operates. This report uses the lens of the MDG Scan to analyse the MDG contributions of 20 select companies and provides an assessment of the actual impact of company efforts in a limited number of developing countries.
