Sustainability #2: Making Global Goals Local Business
February 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Learn how businesses are using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to operate more competitively in global markets. With trillions of dollars in public and private investments being redirected toward achieving the SDGs, the motivation for companies doing business internationally to adopt SDGs grows stronger.
