Leading in the Context of the UNSDGs Programme

How to translate global sustainability, needs and ambitions into business solutions through the context of the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Business leaders across the world are stepping up to include sustainable development at the core of their strategy and decisions. But to drive this transition at the speed and scale required, business leaders need tools and frameworks to turn good intentions into concrete actions.

Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations have started to mobilize efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries, all businesses and all leaders to improve the lives of people everywhere.

Through the context of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ViSiR offers a new lens through which to view sustainable development, in order to translate business activities into real economic, environmental, and social impact for the world. and lead organisations and people towards 2030.
