October 29th | Plenary, KAICC
Why now? Bridging long-standing cultural divides, United Nations officials and global business leaders have found a
common purpose in partnering on the SDGs. Yet, 10 percent of the world’s companies still capture 80 percent of its
profits and achieving these goals will require investments of between $5-$7 trillion annually to 2030. Urgent
questions? How can governments, markets, and communities develop new frameworks for more equitable growth?
What partnerships are necessary to solve urgent environmental challenges? How are the SDGs changing business
strategies and operations across industries? Key takeaways? What the most successful companies in the world are
doing to advance human progress in accordance with global standards.
