Excelling on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals

On November 8th, JCI The Netherlands is organizing the WeDo2030! festival in Amsterdam. It will be the ideal event for businesses, NGOs, governmental agencies and citizens to take action towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) and Nobel prize winner, will share with us his vision of working towards a better world. An array of companies and non-profit organizations will also give us a peek into the actions they are taking. This is your chance to learn from their experiences, hear their tips, and share your own ideas. Let’s see how far The Netherlands has come in achieving these Sustainable Development Goals.

Leveraging the SDGs with Responsible Investors

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been able to catch responsible investors’ attention all around the globe since they were adopted in September 2015. One year down the road, a coalition of investors, including the managers of more than €550bn in Dutch pension assets, publicly committed to integrate SDGs within their investment strategy. Although the coalition is a Dutch and Swedish affair for now, the intention and hope is that other institutional investors will come on board.

Food Waste: $940 Billion Losses and 8% of GHG

It has been one year since the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted globally. The past year showed us that businesses are indispensable in achieving the new global goals. With approximately $5-7 trillion needed to finance the goals on an annual basis, the private sector has a crucial role to play as the engine behind innovation and technological development and an investment source. The Champions 12.3 coalition recently published a progress report assessing the world’s progress towards achieving SDG target 12.3 on tackling food waste and losses.
