The world is facing fundamental and interrelated systematic challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic as well as environmental and social crises .. Read more and issues. Those issues cannot be solved by business as usual. Fortunately, there is a framework that can help navigate efforts to deal with them: the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Right now, the SDGs are the best agenda available to share ambitions and measure progress towards the achievement of a large number of common goals.The private sector’s active involvement is vital in this ambition. But progress is too slow – not because of a lack of intentions, but because of the serious gap in developing advanced strategies in realising the SDGs. It’s difficult to integrate SDGs in core business. So, can corporate leaders step up to the challenge and drive systems change?We think it is possible - and your contribution is important. Join our free, online conference in which we will exchange experiences, showcase tools and concepts, and learn from leading thinkers and experts. Speakers include prof.
