Event description

Description

The UK endorsed the Sustainable Development Goals, Global Goals for a better world by 2030, along with 192 other UN member states back in 2015, as former Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon put it a “paradigm shift for people and planet”.

The 17 Global Goals will be of relevance to any business, covering sustainable economic growth, innovation, circular economies, and end to poverty, reduced inequality, clean energy, addressing climate change, and protection and enhancement of the natural world.

Businesses were engaged with their creation, and will be absolutely critical to their achievement. The Goals will transform our world in a way that will create huge opportunities for new business models, new products, new services and new markets.

Every organisation and individual will benefit from understand this vital global agenda.
