SDG Dialogue: Global Companies and the 2030 Agenda


  • DATE / TIME:
    2017•04•20    13:00 - 17:00

    Given the recent social and political changes in the international community, conventional capitalism is being challenged, and the roles played by global companies in society are rapidly evolving and expanding. This SDG Dialogue event will explore how global companies can contribute to mainstreaming the Sustainable Development Goals. Speakers and participants will exchange views and experiences, and will consider new modes of corporate management in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The event will discuss key questions such as:

    • How can global companies integrate social and environmental agendas into corporate management — not only from a corporate social responsibility perspective, but also in terms of maintaining competitiveness in the face of a global paradigm shift?
    • How can environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investment criteria be linked to the 2030 Agenda?

    The event will be co-organised by the UNU Institute for the Advanced Study of Sustainability (UNU-IAS) and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network Japan, with the support of Nikkei Inc. (TBC), the Global Compact Network Japan, and the Carbon Disclosure Project.
