The Sustainable Development Goals and the Role of Business

Tags: SDGs | business

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out a framework of 17 Goals and 169 targets to tackle the world’s most pressing social, economic, and enviromental challenges in the lead-up to 2030.

While ultimately it is governments who are being asked to deliver the SDGs, the simple fact is that this critical agenda cannot be realized without effective engagement by the private sector.

Business has a critical role to play as:

a source of finance;
a driver of innovation and technology;
an engine of economic growth and employment
