Becoming a Business Leader on the Global Goals


With the deadline of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development fast approaching, urgent and ambitious action is needed from all stakeholders so that we can achieve the Global Goals. Businesses must take bold action in order to maximize their positive impact, and all companies — regardless of their size, sector, or geography — have the potential to be leaders. This Academy session will provide you with a framework for setting your company apart and explore how five leadership qualities — Ambition, Collaboration, Accountability, Consistency and Intentionality — can be applied to business strategies, models, products, supply chains, partnerships and operations in order to raise the bar and create impact at scale.


By completing this session and related learning materials, you will learn to: 

  • Define what it means to be a leader on the Global Goals

  • Assess whether your strategies and practices are leading ones

  • Utilize lessons learned from leading companies that are already working to become leaders on the Global Goals
