Why every entrepreneur should be using the United Nations SDGs to shape their business idea and guide their business for long-term success.
In 2015, the United Nations established 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all".The SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are part of a UN Resolution called the "2030 Agenda".
The 17 SDGs are: (1) No Poverty, (2) Zero Hunger, (3) Good Health and Well-being, (4) Quality Education, (5) Gender Equality, (6) Clean Water and Sanitation, (7) Affordable and Clean Energy, (8) Decent Work and Economic Growth, (9) Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, (10) Reducing Inequality, (11) Sustainable Cities and Communities, (12) Responsible Consumption and Production, (13) Climate Action, (14) Life Below Water, (15) Life On Land, (16) Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions, (17) Partnerships for the Goals.
As we face a warming planet, further globalization, continued and increased threat from global viruses, continued automation and the advancement of AI, all of these factors will continue to disrupt "business as usual." Businesses that are built to address and solve these very problems, will best suited to achieve the greatest impact and sustainability. Just look at how much COVID-19 has disrupted certain industries, while others - online education, telemedicine, food delivery service, and more have flourished.
In this session, we will discuss the importance of aligning not only business outcomes, but the very business itself with the SDGs to ensure not only a profitable future, but a safe, healthy, and equitable future as well. To ensure we are creating solutions to real problems, not creating solutions to perceived problems.
This will be a panel discussion. Speakers & Moderators:
