It has been said many times and in many ways that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) create business opportunities. However, few commentators take the extra step of documenting, as we have done, how all 17 Global Goals can be turned into new market opportunities met by concrete business solutions.
In this, the fourth edition of the annual Global Opportunity Report, we show that for all Sustainable Development Goals there are real opportunities which can make a world of difference.
We hone in on the four SDGs that, according to DNV GL’s “Future of Spaceship Earth” study, are most likely to miss their 2030 targets: Goal 10 “Reduced Inequalities”, Goal 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production”, Goal 13 “Climate Action”, and Goal 14 “Life Below Water”. In the pages that follow, you will find many new business opportunities that directly address these challenging, cross-cutting goals.
