See our newest UN Global Compact / Accenture study on the SDGs - the direction is the right one, the speed is not. "It's time for leaders to ensure sustainability goals are firmly embedded in corporate strategy and company purpose."
The research in brief:
- This joint research is the world’s most comprehensive to-date on business contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (also known as the Global Goals).
- Despite the opportunity of sustainability, CEOs believe business execution is not measuring up.
- CEOs believe that systemic change is key to influencing the broader business community to deliver real progress against the Global Goals.
- To break through the status quo, CEOs need businesses to raise corporate ambition, collaborate in new ways and elevate the responsibility of leaders.
