Abstract:This study investigates the possibilities of integrating the SDGs in the budgeting and geographic sustainable reporting approaches for (Dutch) municipalities. This is executed by a case study at the Municipality of Rheden. The Municipality of Rheden has been awarded with the title of ‘Most promising Global Goals municipality of The Netherlands’ in 2019. At the moment, the municipality is already working with the SDGs in their budget and reporting approaches and in this study research has been done to improve that. The current budget has been analysed with the Grounded Theory in order to determine the extent to which the SDGs are already been integrated in the budget. The analysis showed that the SDGs are currently integrated into the budget reasonably well. ‘SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities’ is the SDG that is integrated most in the budget. Furthermore, three visualisations of projects of the Municipality of Rheden are made to illustrate the possibilities of this aspect. The local use of the food banks of the municipality, the costs of youth care and the increased amount of greenery in the streets are visualised to show the impact in line with the SDGs.
