With the Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) now adopted, attention is shifting to how they will be delivered. All sectors now recognise that business’ contribution will be pivotal. Leading examples of sustainable business practices exist, but to achieve the Global Goals, such practices will need to move from the cutting edge to the mainstream.
This workshop is designed to help companies embed the Global Goals into their core business and social investment activities, with an emphasis on enabling action by sharing insights, approaches and practical tools from leading businesses as well as civil society organisations and initiatives.
For business, the Global Goals provide a means to align sustainability strategies with international and local priorities and a yardstick against which to measure policies, practices and progress.
This workshop will help practitioners to:
• build a clearly articulated and measurable business case
• align business goals and strategy with development imperatives
• identify opportunities and mitigate risks through the business and value chain
• develop partnerships that enhance impact and share risk.
The session will emphasise business’ contribution to jobs, livelihoods, decent work and human rights, however the insights, approaches and tools shared will also be broadly applicable to other Global Goals.
This workshop is open to business practitioners. To apply for a place, please email Natasha Ncube.
