Businesses must elevate their ambitions and actions to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, and on the near term to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we look towards recovery from COVID-19, we must do so with resilience in mind, helping to ensure that economic models and business practices take into account the importance of addressing the needs of our most vulnerable communities and our natural systems.
