Why the Sustainable Development Goals matter for business

Implementation of the sustainable development goals sdgs
The SDGs are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, for the year 2030. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals each have a list of targets, measured with indicators.


"Implementation" is the key word in the effort to understand what the future will look like

What is essential to note is that the implementation of the SDGs by governments, organisations, regulators, stock exchanges, local government and business is already taking place, with regulations becoming ever stricter.

  1. Is your business prepared with a plan of action?
  2. Are you prepared for stricter regulations on waste and emissions, for example?

Millennials, the largest generation ever, are attracted to businesses whose priorities align with their own.

They choose to work for or with businesses (as managers) that are in for the long term and can demonstrate that they are taking solid, focused action and are at the forefront of the transition to the green, circular economy.

  1. Can you demonstrate that you are the right employer to top talent, who are ever more important in the effort to achieve strategic business objectives?
  2. Will your business be the one Millennials choose to engage with as managers?
