The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.
The SDGs provide business with a powerful framework to translate global needs and ambitions into business solutions. They enable companies to better manage their risks and unlock opportunities. Radical transformation is required to deliver the Global Goals, allowing business to demonstrate leadership and apply its creativity to innovate for a more sustainable and inclusive future.
Opportunities are Everywhere
