Over 150 world leaders expressed their support to the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development that were formulated into Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDGs) comprising social, economic and environmental challenges that require global action to make a change and to create a sustainable society. Business organisations are seen as having a major role in the achievement of these UN-SDGs. It has also been acknowledged that achieving the SDGs requires partnership among governments, the private sector, civil society and citizens. The speaker for this Masterclass will share how companies or business organisations can work with non-government organisations in achieving the UN-SDGs along with their business goals.
