edie’s dedicated SDG week of content kicks off
To tie in with UN’s official Global Goals Week and Climate Week NYC, edie is running a week of content, interviews and online webinars all dedicated to making the Sustainable Development Goals a global reality.
Sustainable Development Goals Week 2022 (18 – 22 September) is edie’s themed week of editorial content and events dedicated to informing and inspiring businesses to accelerate action on the UN’s Global Goals. Scroll down to view the latest SDG content.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – which define our global priorities and aspirations for 2030 – represent a crucial opportunity to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. Achieving the Goals requires an unprecedented effort across all aspects of society – and business sits at the heart of it.
But with less than seven years left to deliver on the ambition of the SDGs, it’s clear that business must step up if we’re to have the positive impact on society which the Goals ultimately exist to drive.
edie’s SDG Week is about driving the transformational action needed to achieve the Goals. Hosted during the UN’s official Global Goals Week and tying in with Climate Week NYC, edie’s Focus Week will provide need-to-know industry updates, thought leadership discussions and practical insights which empower businesses to transform our world through the SDG framework.
