The Business and Sustainable Development Commission has released a new report: Better Business, Better World following research into the impact on businesses that achieve the 17 UN sustainable development goals.
Despite significant progress over the last 30 years globally, in health and technology, the report highlights failure in today’s markets and models of development. It finds the next decade to be critical for business leaders in setting strategy that can transform markets, while tackling social and environmental challenges. The report offers a roadmap towards sustainable business models that could potentially unveil economic opportunities worth up to US$12 trillion and increase employment by up to 380 million jobs by 2030.
The Corporate Citizenship team was engaged by The Business and Sustainable Development Commission to contribute to the research and analysis, and we commend the Commission’s findings and final report.
