“Every B# ID is unique and references only one specific entity. B#IDs are universal. They can identify all the people, organisations, places or things in complex systems. B# IDs are always registered, indexed and searchable free of charge. It costs nothing to create, assign or receive a B# ID. Each B# ID is a primary key for the same entity across any data system. B# IDs enable free data exchange between users based on their own permissions. 

Research on the MDGs [Millennial Development Goals] (succeeded by the SDGs) shows that critical data gaps exists at the individual level. In one instance, data shows that global poverty levels might be higher than the previously assumed amount of 25 percent. Surveys and census on employment and households miss up to 350 million people. The current thinking extrapolates sampled top-down data to measure progress, and this is a weakness of unconnected, silo-based, legacy data systems.

Bluenumbers can measure if SDG investments are actually delivering the benefits promised to individuals. Government, CSR and sustainability practitioners can directly measure if they are making progress and if people’s lives are getting better.
