How can my company seize those opportunities? Business is the engine of the economy, growth, innovation and job creation. Every company, large and small, has the potential to make a significant contribution towards economic, social and environmental progress. The United Nations carefully created 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that identify what we all should be striving towards, and what we should reach by 2030 for the benefit of mankind. This is a call to action for both business and capital. Frontrunners are gearing their business practices to help achieve the Goals. If the SDGs make anything clear to business, it is that business for good is good business. Markets worth trillions of dollars are waiting at the door to be unlocked. Unlocking these markets is not only a great opportunity, it is a necessity--back cover.
