The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an urgent call for action by all countries and provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. The goals recognize that ending poverty is inextricably linked with improving health and education, reducing inequality, and spurring economic growth – all while tackling climate change and preserving bio-diversity.
This event will explore the SDGs, and in particular, will explore the role of the corporate sector as a vital partner in the SDGs. Not only is the corporate sector a powerful lever for creating greater environmental sustainability and shared prosperity, but the business case for sustainable business practices gets even stronger each year. Our speakers will also discuss the future of the fast-growing segment of the investment field, ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) investing, an approach that is rooted in the idea that all investments have health, environmental, and societal impacts.
