The United Nations adopts the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and explicitly call on the business community to play a role in addressing the world’s greatest challenges.
“It’s exciting to see how much passion and energy amongst us to play our part in building a better future. For people trying to align sustainability with their commercial strategy, just make sure it always goes down for all the teams, so that each employee can deliver impact at work.”
Gary Power, Accenture
"In our daily work life, it is easy to get stuck in our world and roles. Discussing sustainability with experts and people from different parts of the business community to drive the dialogue, that’s the little spark you need to get ideas going."
Lars Aagaard, Barclays
"Sustainability is a complex transition involving many different factors, while businesses also try to prioritise their value and purpose. We learn a lot from others’ experiences and through deliberate focus, we can collectively navigate meaningful solutions."
Pamela Hinton, Sustainable Office Solutions
"A lot of people talk about "this department, this initiative". I think that’s the biggest barrier that we have to help organisations cross: people see change in a very silo-ed way. There is a lot of education to do and awareness to build, to embed sustainability in the business model. "
Karen Seymour, Human at Work
