Accelerating Business Actions for Realizing
Sustainable Development Goals
Day: 09th February, 2024 | Friday
Time: 12:15 pm to 01:30 pm IST

Session Description

In a world marked by polycrisis, ~15% of the SDGs are presently on track. Global business leaders must play a pivotal role in the success of achieving the 2030 targets. Their approach to integrating climate action in business models holds the potential to catalyse changes in this arena through measures including technological enhancements, innovations, and financial support.

With the uncertainty surrounding the adoption of these measures, collaboration between state and markets has gained importance. Green innovations and policies, such as green investments, demand-enhancing measures, innovation policies, standards, regulatory support, and public procurement require encouragement.

This session will aim to discuss challenges and actionable solutions for integrating SDGs and climate action in business models and how the corporate sector can accelerate the global goals.

The umbrella question for this session is: How can business actions be accelerated for realizing sustainable development goals?
