"Aligning corporate strategies to the Sustainable Development Goals: Challenges and opportunities"
November 7, 11 am CET
A landmark report launched by the Business & Sustainable Development Commission (BSDC) reveals that pursuing sustainable and inclusive business models could unlock economic opportunities worth at least US$12 trillion a year by 2030 and generate up to 380 million jobs. However, the SDG agenda and the market potential that it represents will only be realized through meaningful engagement at scale by the private sector.
This webinar, organized by CSR manager Network and WBCSD, will explore the crucial role that business has to play in achieving the SDGs as well as positioning clear actions that business leaders can take to align their organizations with the SDGs and plot a course towards unlocking the value they represent. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the key implications that this agenda has for business across the spectrum of risk, opportunity, governance & transparency, and the need for collaborative action.
Speaker: Filippo Veglio, Managing Director, Social Capital at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD).
