Sustainable business by numbers
Sustainability is not a choice, its your greatest opportunity ever
When 193 countries adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals they also gave businesses globally a rare gift. They provided a clear map of the areas where we need new products, services and business models that can shape a more fair, prosperous and peaceful world.
Now business has the opportunity to act. The business case is clear in many sectors, investors are asking for more sustainable business practices and governments will welcome any new solution that will help them meet the SGD targets before the 2030 deadline. Recent research shows achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in just four economic systems could open 60 market “hot spots” worth an estimated US$12 trillion by 2030 in business savings and revenue.
However, business - and especially the large group of SMEs - are still struggling to figure out how they can start their own sustainable opportunity journey. They need insights, skills, networks, new partners and not least the drive to reach for the sustainable growth markets of the future. That´s what I aim to bring them.
