UN Sustainable Development Goals 

Een mondiaal toekomstplan om met elkaar in 2030 een eind te maken aan armoede, ongelijkheid en klimaatverandering. Dat beogen de 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) van de Verenigde Naties. De inzet van bedrijven is hierbij hard nodig.

DSGC leden omarmen de SDGs, die ricting geven aan duurzame groei, investeringen en innovatie. Ook stimuleren ze samenwerking tussen sectoren: bedrijfsleven, overheden, financiële instanties, non-profit organisaties, kennisinstellingen en burgers. Bijdragen aan (één van) de SDG's gaat hand in hand met financiële en maatschappelijke waardecreatie. Voor ondernemers vormen de werelddoene dus een kansenagenda.
