SDG In Action Podcast Series

As we near the crucial midpoint of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a sobering realization has emerged: the global momentum towards meeting the Global Goals is not as swift or expansive as needed. Though the objective of realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals by 2030 remains within reach, it demands urgent, scalable, and collaborative action across sectors to accelerate progress. Central to this urgency is the transformative potential of businesses. The global community anticipates and depends on the leadership of UN Global Compact committed companies to spearhead bold and impactful initiatives.

With this backdrop, the UN Global Compact Network Canada presents the 'SDG in Action' podcast series. This endeavour aims to distill the SDGs into actionable and achievable strategies, specifically catered to the Canadian business landscape. Each episode is designed to offer a comprehensive exploration of one or several SDGs, enabling Canadian enterprises to align with, understand, and integrate these universal objectives.

This podcast series is sponsored byElement Fleet Management, a leading provider of fleet management solutions committed to sustainability and supporting businesses in their journey towards a more sustainable future.

The Business Case for Sustainable Development
