Everyone agrees that the SDGs should be met. But without extraordinary action, this won’t happen. DNV GL’s Future of Spaceship Earth research forecasts that none of the SDGs will be met in any regions of the world. We need to step up our collective efforts to reach the goals..
Business has a significant role to play in delivering and supporting the additional action needed. Society expects business to act (e.g. 90% of consumers according to a recent PwC study). And there are huge potential benefits: companies could unlock at least $12 trillion in market opportunities create up to 380 million jobs, according to the Business and Sustainable Development Commissions report to the 2016 World Economic Forum. However, there is little evidence of action beyond sticking SDG logos on existing plans.
We know business wants to do more, so how can we kick-start this extraordinary action?
