The choices we make every day as business leaders can have a significant impact on society, the environment and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  From investment decisions (such as impact investing) and strategic planning to resource management and company policy, even the smallest actions can accumulate into global impact.  By better understanding the SDGs, and the role of business in supporting them, we can more effectively promote choices with positive outcomes for both business and sustainable development.
