UN Secretary General António Guterres has appointed Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg to co-lead the UN Advocates Group for SDGs. This places Nordic companies in a unique position to take on a leading role in incorporating the SDGs into the corporate world. Yet, if this springboard is to be optimized, sustainability needs to move higher up on the boards’ agendas.

The UN Global Compact Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are at the heart of “Agenda 2030” – a plan adopted by all 193 UN Member States, for achieving a better future for all — aiming to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. Business play a crucial part in achieving these ambitious goals.
