The contribution of businesses in the implementation of SDGs study aimed to interview, gather information, and learn about the mentality of the new business owners considering them the “future business leader”, whom will be responsible for the 2030 agenda of the UN. Businesses, from the researcher’s point of view, are critical partner in implementing the goals; they are the real actors in today’s world. Many researches have been conducted to study the Sustainable development from all its attributes, SDGs, who are the main concept of the research where fully explained connecting them with the Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) along with what might mainly concern the businesses which is now known to be SDG Compass. Few business owners where interviewed from different backgrounds and sectors, to analyse their responses as the focal data for the study. Answers received were interesting and diverse, helped the researcher to understand more and more about the outlook of the new generation of business people. Some of the hypotheses in this research were met and valid, others had some objections and could be improved and further tested. As a summary, whether business owners, individuals, students or people in need, the SDGs as a concept is surely advantageous and would bring the world to another level, on practical side, they won’t be easy and need the world hand in hand to contribute in them. Governments as well as businesses need to emphasize on this agenda and develop models for reporting and communication to perfectly ensure the implementation of the goals, SDG Compass requires to be more spread and explained, along with the encouragement for businesses to start implementing CSR since day one in their companies, because those goals are ‘17 goals to transform our world’, they have been studied, reviewed and adopted by all member states in the United Nations for highly honourable reasons concerning people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnership.
