This keynote explicates the role business needs to play in delivering on the Paris Agreement as well as makes clear the need for stakeholder collaboration if real progress is to be made
This panel points to the largely disapproving and abrasive reaction to Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement as assurance that the delivery of the goals set-forth by this agreement is a serious and worthwhile commitment for businesses. An important takeaway is that for business to thrive long-term, communities also need to prosper and delivery on the SDGs is crucial to this. The SDG’s offer clear objectives for businesses to align with to join the global movement towards a sustainable future.
