Innovation for Sustainable Development

15.9.2021 10:00


The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for 2030 are universal, interconnected and exponential in nature. Several of the goals call for transforming the conditions of billions of people in a short time frame. The global ambitions of the SDGs require transformational solutions that go beyond incremental improvements.

Businesses are in a key position to find and scale up new solutions to global challenges. By engaging in effective cross-sectoral collaboration and partnerships, the business community can be a driving force for breakthrough innovation and exponential change that make the ambitious vision of the SDGs reality.

Join us in an open webinar where we discuss the urgent need for collaborative breakthrough innovation in light of achieving the Global Goals and explore the business case and various opportunities related to sustainability-focused innovation.

Accompanied by keynotes from experts in innovation and sustainability transformations as well as case examples, participants will leave this event inspired to adopt a transformative mindset towards the SDGs in their business and create exponential change through innovation and meaningful partnerships.
