Seize these 10 business opportunities to get the U.N. Global Goals back on track

Monday, February 19, 2018

“Behind every global risk there’s an opportunity.” That has been the mantra of the Global Opportunity Report since we at Sustainia launched the project in 2014, in partnership with DNV GL and the United Nations Global Compact. As a counterpart to World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report, which outlines the world’s most pressing risks, the Global Opportunity Reports turn global risks into business opportunities, inviting companies to tap into these and make both a profit and a positive impact in the world.

This year, however, we decided not to focus on five of the biggest global risks, but rather on the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals that are most off-track to meet their 2030 targets unless we step up our efforts: Goal 10 (reduced inequality); Goal 12 (responsible consumption and production); Goal 13 (climate action); and Goal 14 (life below water).
