RISK MANAGEMENT

A new era for Sustainability

The SDGs are a Call to Action for strategic businesses

“Sustainability” is changing from a focus on energy efficiency, waste reduction and other similar activities, to a more holistic approach: a total rebalancing of the relationship of business to society and to the environment. The UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), defined by 169 targets and 232 indicators, are a powerful framework for understanding the actions of nations. And, inevitability, the impact of nations on society and the environment are significantly comprised of the actions of industry, and the businesses within them.
 

Companies that succeed in this environment will be the ones that embrace Sustainable Business concepts and align their operational strategies with the SDGs, rather than simply report on business as usual. 


In this competitive environment for adopting Sustainable Business  models and utilizing the SDGs, companies that don’t understand and act on them will be left behind.
