Online Masterclass 5 November 2020: Understanding the sustainable development Goals (SDGs) and what it means for you and YOUR BUSINESS

Online Masterclass 5 November 2020: Understanding the sustainable development Goals (SDGs) and what it means for you and YOUR BUSINESS

The SDGs,or the Sustainable Development Goals,were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

Achieving the SDGs requires the partnership of governments, private sector, civil society and citizens alike to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations. In the recent publication of the UN Global Compact Progress report 2019, we see that despite the excitement and commitments in response to the powerful and interdependent masterplans, that the world has collectively fallen short.

Now, to deliver on this extraordinary opportunity to promote peace and prosperity on a healthy planet, efforts from all stakeholders must be exponentially intensified. There is also a clear role for businesses.

Investors mitigate risks in their portfolio through DIVERSIFICATION. In companies we have learned that we are better positioned to create value if we INCLUDE the unfiltered voice of our customers. If we apply these principles to the way we lead our people, diversity and inclusion become hygiene factors.

That is called your intention of being. Something completely different than a purpose; it’s who you are by nature, in every cell of your body.
