Why do we engage on the SDGs, when these are policy goals and not always directly applicable to companies? Our view is that the long-term success of business is inextricably linked to that of the goals.
Many delegates used Global Goals Week to call for better corporate reporting in relation to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and greater collaboration between stakeholders.
