This webinar, co-hosted by CSR Manager Network and World Business Council for Sustainable Development, is managed by Filippo Veglio, Managing Director of World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)
Thanks to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we have a clear and comprehensive agenda for global development towards 2030, representing an unprecedented opportunity to put society on a truly sustainable and equitable pathway. For its part, the Paris Agreement is a major step forward by all governments of the world to safeguard the future of life on our planet.
The agreement heralds a new relationship between governments, business and other non-state actors to work together to accelerate the transition to a thriving, clean economy with equitable access to sustainable development for all. Put simply, the SDGs and the Paris Agreement signal the need for a deep change in the way our economies work, and in the way our energy, mobility, urbanization, food and social systems contribute to planetary and societal well-being.WBCSD advocates that business has a leading role to play as the world embarks upon this vital journey.
In fact, forward-looking companies are not only integrating sustainability at the core of their strategy, decision-making, and disclosures; as long-standing masters of innovation, they are also ideally positioned to become the implementation partner of choice to capture opportunities across systems change. At the same time, businesses need to redefine their conception of “value” to go beyond traditional financial terms. It is only by taking this integrated approach that we will create a socially, environmentally and economically successful future.
