The Global Goals (or Sustainable Development Goals/SDGs) were hailed as a ‘paradigm shift for people and planet’ by former Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon.

After the largest public consultation ever undertaken, the Global Goals were adopted in 2015 by the UK and the other 192 member states of the United Nations. At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, they call for economic growth, innovation, circular economies and upgraded infrastructure, as well as providing a path to end extreme poverty, fight inequality, and protect the planet.

Realising the Goals will require all players to champion this agenda – governments, civil society, academia, and particularly the business community. Supporting the Goals presents an unprecedented opportunity for business to regain the trust of its stakeholders and society in general, but the Goals also represent a compelling growth strategy for business. A report from the Business & Sustainable Development Commission, Better Business Better World, shows how pursuing the Global Goals could raise trillions in new market opportunities.

Every organisation and individual can benefit from understanding this vital global agenda!
