Set of 17 global development goals defined by the United Nations for the year 2030
By Marga Hoek, author of Tech For Good: Imagine Solving the World's Greatest Challenges Technology will tremendously speed up our progress on achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As we cross over the threshold into the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), 70% of the 169 targets that deliver the SDGs are impacted directly by advanced technologies. Tech for Good serves as way to fast-forward. A wide variety of new technologies blend digital and physical worlds, thereby going beyond former industrial revolutions and entering a new era. Advanced technologies such as AI and data, 3D printing, robotics, autonomous vehicles and drones, and blockchain combine impactful and integrated solutions. Prioritizing purpose-driven technological implementation that is directed by the framework of the SDGs will accelerate the Tech for Good agenda. Several technologies have already contributed to massive societal improvements, including access to public services and economic opportunities for millions of people. These new tech applications make it possible to leverage sustainable impact at scale, and at the same time seize exciting market opportunities. From administering medicines in remote areas to solving further biodiversity loss, from boosting our ability to mitigate climate change to reducing food waste, and from providing access to education to fostering greater equality, the technological capacity to touch all 17 SDGs is deep. While momentum to tackle the SDGs has grown significantly, there is still a long way to go on this "to-do list" for the world. With the rising global population, pressure of developing economies and a growing middle class, we need to create solutions at a much larger scale and at a more rapid pace than we have up to now. We are at a pivotal moment, the halfway point on the SDGs timeline of 2015 to 2030, but we are nowhere near achieving our Global Goals. All stakeholders together, including businesses, governments, civil societies, and scientists, will be catalysts for unlocking the potential of these advanced technologies. There is growing recognition that if we are to reach these targets and build a better world for all by 2030, business-as-usual and continued incremental reforms will not be enough. To achieve this monumental progress, we need the accelerating power of tech that propels solutions at scale. The potential economic and societal impact of Tech for Good to meet the SDGs is substantial. For example, as one small aspect of the tech-SDG intersection, recent studies show that existing AI applications across agriculture, energy, transport, and water could conservatively contribute over $5 trillion to the global economy in 2030 and create nearly 40 million new jobs. At the same time, these estimates indicate reduced global greenhouse gas emissions by 4% which, for reference, is equal to the projected 2030 annual emissions of Australia, Canada, and Japan combined. The enormous promise of Tech for Good, both for the world as well as for business, is clear. Tech for Good has become a global movement and is a defining term for business innovation acceleration. With a purpose-driven approach to the way technologies are deployed, businesses will undoubtedly play a crucial role in speeding up worldwide progress. While fostering a shared value operational model and building trust in technological breakthroughs, businesses will both gain a competitive advantage and perpetuate sustainable growth. When developing technology, businesses must be nimble and take the lead to incorporate responsible practices and sound frameworks to ensure forward momentum. The Tech for Good movement reflects this positive and powerful joining of forces to solve our most pressing global challenges. This is how Tech for Good will accelerate our collective progress toward achieving the SDGs. Bio: Marga Hoek is a three-time CEO, Chair, and Board Member.

If you are into branding, communication, PR, brand building, employee advocacy, Linkedin, science, greentech, decarbonization, this episode is for you. How can brands incorporate sustainability and science into their core in an authentic way and avoid the trap of greenwashing? It is one thing to craft a sustainable brand on paper and a completely different story to integrate branding as part of the whole company and the whole customer journey, without greenwashing. Every company in the world needs to decrease its carbon footprint and the negative impact on the planet, but it's not an easy thing to do. You need to have clean data, a decarbonization strategy and a lot of scientific knowledge. That's why Plan A is here. Plan A helps foster sustainable transition in the business world. They work towards eliminating and avoiding emissions, rather than compensating them and this takes a great amount of science behind. More than 1500 companies trust them to decarbonize their business with clients such as BMW, Deutsche Bank, Visa, and KFC.

Alina Truhina, Managing Partner of The Radical Fund, and Jeremy Au delve into three main topics: 1. Climate Change Realities: Alina acknowledges Southeast Asia's position as both a significant emitter of greenhouse gases and a region increasingly vulnerable to climate change. She also touches on the notion that addressing climate change seems elitist and is not yet a priority for the general population who are more concerned with immediate household and financial needs. She proposes fostering habit changes through user-centric business models that make environmental choices accessible and practical without demanding drastic lifestyle overhauls. 2. Entrepreneurial Approaches to ESG: Alina draws attention to the often-misunderstood concepts of ESG, climate, impact, and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), urging founders to go beyond the tokenism of using SDG logos and to sincerely embed these principles into their operational metrics. She advocates a $4.3 trillion economic opportunity for Asia stemming from proactive climate action and showcasing the profitability in sustainability efforts. She also explores the transformative potential of VC and other financial instruments in supporting founders who are championing technological innovations geared toward local community needs. 3. Adversity & Personal Growth: Reflecting on her background as a political refugee, Alina recounts the discrimination her family faced following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, leading to their move to Australia. She deeply connects with entrepreneurs she works with, resonating with those who have faced similar socio-economic battles. She explains that her outsider status has been both a challenge and an advantage, offering a distinctive perspective and driving her to surround herself with local teams that contribute to a comprehensive understanding of each market. She emphasizes her commitment to investing in transformative solutions that empower entrepreneurs to enact positive change and provide opportunities for others in their communities. They also talked about building coalitions and driving change as an outsider in the industry, the loneliness of a founder's journey, the significance of peer-to-peer networks in providing support for founders, the importance of emotional intelligence for effective leadership, and the emerging role of women in VC.

Hear from Simon Zadek, Executive Director at NatureFinance and Senior Advisor to the TNFD, as we explore the growing intersection of nature and finance. With the recent release of the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures Framework (TNFD), the idea of nature risk is now in the spotlight for many finance professionals. Even though some may have encountered elements of ‘nature' in their work before, for example when looking at supply chain risk, it may not have been labelled as such. And with many just getting to grips with climate risk management, there is an open question around how to incorporate nature-related issues. That's why in today's episode, we'll take a closer look at the concept of nature in finance. We'll reflect on: How it's defined, and what risks it presents to our economies; What the TNFD framework covers and what this means for risk professionals; and The risks and opportunities that nature presents.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome back to the Virtual Studio, Homi Kharas. In September during the High-Level Week at the UN General Assembly heads of state and government gathered at the invitation of the Secretary General to examine at the halfway point the progress made in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). I wanted to get Homi's views of the progress he saw in achieving the 17 goals of Agenda 2030. I also wanted to get Homi's view of the two reports – ‘The Triple Agenda' - of the Independent Expert Group (IEG) convened during the G20 India Presidency. The two volumes focused on the enhancement of the Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) and their focus on global development and the green transition. Homi was, in fact, the lead author for both volumes of the ‘Triple Agenda'. Homi is a senior fellow in the Center for Sustainable Development, housed in the Global Economy and Development program at Brookings. In that capacity, he studies policies and trends influencing developing countries, including aid to poor countries, the emergence of the middle class, and global governance and the G20. His most recent co-authored/edited books are: “The Rise of the Middle Class: How the Search for the Good Life Can Change the World” (2023), “Breakthrough: The Promise of Frontier Technologies for Sustainable Development” edited with John McArthur and Izumi Ohno (2022) and “Leave No One Behind: From Summits to Solutions: Time for Specifics on the Sustainable Development Goals" edited with John McArthur and Izumi Ohno (2019).

Youth inclusion and business. Why do businesses need to better listen to young people and how can you be better at youth inclusion? In today's rapidly evolving corporate environment, businesses need to prioritise inclusivity – not only as a moral imperative, but as a crucial element in staying competitive. Young people, with their adaptability and unique perspective, represent a significant stakeholder in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By actively involving this demographic, businesses can drive meaningful change, ensuring that innovations are both inclusive and sustainable. Listen to Morten Enggaard Rasmussen, Executive Vice President, People, Sustainability & Brand, Novozymes A/S and AiLun Ku, President & CEO, The Opportunity Network as they frankly explain how to better support, listen to and engage young people in business. AiLun explains: "[Young people] have so many assets and so many talents. And when we only apply adult brains, and adult thinking and frameworks we came up with, we leave a lot of things intact and a lot of things unsaid." Whilst Morten challenges us: "I have a call for anyone in here: look at the company, look at your leader... If they are not diverse, if they are not looking for inclusivity, they don't deserve you. Move on. There are plenty of opportunities."

This week, in light of the recent and extreme escalation in violence in Israel and Gaza, and the resultant rage and outrage that's consuming our news and social feeds I'm publishing this episode with some trepidation but in the hope that it will instill some sense of belief that peace is possible. I am republishing an interview with Stephen Hecht, Founder and CEO of A Million Peacemakers. Their principle of Nonflict provides inspiring examples of how to foster reconciliation, mutual understanding, and peace, even in entrenched conflicts where the path to peace may seem hopelessly complex.Stephen Hecht co-founder of Million Peacemakers provides inspiration to anyone who doubts their ability to change the world for the better, at scale. Stephen is proof that good intentions, a little creativity, underpinned by clear goals can result in monumental impact, at any age. Million Peacemakers is a non-profit organization that empowers people to transform conflict into what they call Nonflict. Stephens's inspiration came from his multi-faith work and his own transformation in focussing on the commonality in people over the differences.Over 225,000 people around the world trained in the first 5 years with a focus on youth, families, and businesses, Stephen is changing the world one peacemaker training session at a time.Stephen has led Nonflict way workshops in Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and the USA including Puerto Rico, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Israel, Jordan, Mexico, Bulgaria, England, Germany, Spain, and Canada.He was also a speaker at the Vatican in March 2019 for an international conference on Religions and the UN Sustainable Development Goals and was invited back 3 weeks later to speak about creating a culture of peace in the world.I hope you enjoy this episode of empathy, compassion and conflict resolution with Stephen HechtTIMECODES 00:00 Intro03:40 Stephen on his upbringing 04:45His uncle's defining influence05:30 Being aware of his curiosity as a child 06:10 The defining experience of visiting Israel 06:50 Witnessing his first intra-group conflict 07:30 Stephen and his education path 08:00 The early experience of conflict in business09:20 Joining Young President Organization 10:15 Building interfaith unity 13:45 Building the three-step model for Nonflict15:38 The Nonflict steps to conflict resolution 32:10 Creating a Million Peacemakers andtesting Nonflict in Palestine33:20 How Serendipity has enabled him34:25 Working with the Vatican and The Pope46:10 His principles46:10 His Hard Choices 47:10 The Impossible QuestionSocial Links Million Peacemakers Instagram Facebook Twitter /XLinks In the Show Young Presidents OrganizationSustainable Development Goals Robin Sharma The 5 am Club Hosted on Acast.

Garreth Wood is a Scottish philanthropist and advocate. He and his wife Nicola founded Kids Operating Room with the vision of ‘A world where every child has equal access to safe surgery.' He believes that generosity requires tenacity; the ability to hang on when letting go appears most attractive. He is inspired by the tenacity of the surgical teams KidsOR supports worldwide. The grit, perseverance, and resilience they show every day, often in impossibly difficult working environments, is an inspiration to him. David Cunningham is passionate about achieving Universal Health Coverage. This includes ensuring every child has access to high-quality healthcare when they need it – no matter where they were born. A strong advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals, David is a global leader in developing charitable programs for children's health. He has provided leadership to healthcare projects in the UK and across the world, impacting the lives of millions of children. David is a highly regarded charity regulation expert. He is a Board member of the UK Fundraising Regulator and a member of the regulator's Standards Committee, setting the rules for all fundraising in the UK. Garreth and David join me on the show to discuss Kids OR's mission and how they help hospitals in developing countries by providing the equipment and facilities they need to provide pediatric surgical services. Garreth and David share their individual journeys into generosity and how they came to work together at Kids OR. The pair also dig into the details of the artwork used in the operating rooms and explain why the bright, bold colors have such a positive impact on doctors, nurses, and, most importantly, their tiny patients. “If you get the right people, it makes life very easy.” - Garreth Wood “Our goal should be to support countries to get to a place where they don't need our aid.” - David Cunningham “Our artwork is hugely beneficial in terms of the journey to the OR for children.” - Garreth Wood This Week on The Wow Factor: Why Garreth moved from the restaurant and hospitality industry and became committed to helping children who need surgery in developing countries Some of Garreth's entrepreneurial failures and how they taught him to move forward What David learned from going in at the bottom at a cancer non-profit in Scotland How Garreth and David met and why they decided to work together at Kids OR The personal circumstances that made saying yes to a philanthropic project in Uganda easy for Garreth Godwin, the first baby they operated on in Uganda, and the impact of that moment on the mission and Godwin's family How they help countries in the developing world to create working operating rooms by being respectful of their grassroots needs Why the artwork on the walls of an operating room is so impactful for both the clinical teams and their patients Garreth's perspective on generosity and the kind of people who are generous with their time or money The responsibilities of wealth transfer and how to foster generosity within that David Cunningham's Word of Wisdom: Having empathy is vital in leadership — kindness is courageous. Garreth Wood's Words of Wisdom: It's so vital for leaders to share the success with their team and recognize them regularly and publicly.

Climate negotiators met during New York Climate Week between 17-24 September with the central focus on validating tangible progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). After a recent official stocktake confirmed that progress is only on track for 15% of related targets and indicators, the sense of urgency of alignment between businesses, investors and NGOs to future-proof decarbonisation efforts ahead of COP28 in Dubai between 29 November-12 December, was clear in New York. In this week's podcast, Ehsan Khoman, Head of Commodities, ESG and Emerging Markets Research (EMEA), discusses the key takeaways from New York Climate Week. He believes that whilst there remained large differences of perspectives on tackling the net zero equation in New York, commonalities emphasising value chain partnerships, infrastructure building and quality reporting were a step in the right direction in working collectively through tackling some of the most pressing climate change challenges.

The United Nations, founded in the aftermath of history's most destructive war, is the world's premier forum for international diplomacy. But is the UN a vestige of a bygone era? This year's session of the UN General Assembly, which today closes general debate, has been the site of much frustration over the war in Ukraine, the stalled progress of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, and the lack of representation for the global south. The world has changed since the end of World War II, and as this episode's guest, Suzanne Nossel, argues, so too must the UN. Currently CEO of PEN America, Suzanne served in the UN under both the Clinton and Obama administrations as Deputy to the US Ambassador for UN Management and Reform and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations. Suzanne joins the Eurasia Group Foundation's Mark Hannah to reimagine the UN to better address these challenges and others.
