Opening Keynote

Day one of the GLOBAL VALUE virtual launch was all about setting the scene for an exciting three-day exploration of the future of measuring and managing corporate contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals. With a prize of US$ 12 trillion in new business opportunities at stake, companies and their development partners alike have a major incentive to better understand how exactly they impact on global sustainable development.

André Martinuzzi and Norma Schönherr from the Institute for Managing Sustainability at WU Vienna, provided an introduction into the thoughts and concepts behind the GLOBAL VALUE project and toolkit.

How has CSR evolved in recent years? What are the implications and opportunities of the Sustainable Development Goals for business? How can companies contribute today? What are the tools at their disposal for strengthening impact measurement and management?

This webcast was first published at the GLOBAL VALUE virtual launch, the final conference of the GLOBAL VALUE project, on 12th June 2017. For more information on business and the SDGs, check the GLOBAL VALUE toolkit:
