COVID-19 has slowed, even regressed progress on some of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Staying on track will mean not just rethinking businesses but actively creating businesses whose mission is to address the most pressing problems that our world faces today.
It has also presented the world with an opportunity to design better systems that address the flaws of the pre-COVID times.
Systemic thinking will be key to long-term discovery. Designing conscientious ecosystems and businesses that keep people and the planet at the center will create lasting value for stakeholders and ensure long term success.

why conversations on sustainability matter
With less than a decade to implement sustainable solutions to the world's biggest challenges, more action is needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals: a shared blueprint of peace and prosperity, for people and planet.
The private sector, along with governments, civil society organisations, and youths, plays a pivotal role in catalysing the urgent change needed.
From tackling climate change and food insecurity to overcoming digital disruption and supply chain vulnerabilities, we need to make the decade ahead the Decade for Decisive Action.
