The world is waking up to the values of environmental and social responsibility. Over the summer, the Financial Times reported that sustainable investments outperformed the wider global stock index including during the market downturn. This strengthens the case for exploring how to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in business models and investment decisions.
This November, INSEAD will discuss how to capture these opportunities during SDG Week – a three-day event co-organised by the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society and our INSEAD Student Clubs. In partnership with Accenture Strategy, SDG Week connects experts and leaders with the INSEAD community – students, participants, faculty, staff, alumni and partners.
Each day will feature virtual conversations on specific solutions to understand how businesses and societies can create a positive impact in the world, while contributing to the success of the SDGs. Co-designed with eight student clubs, the 2020 edition will explore impact investing; careers in sustainability; impact entrepreneurship; and equity, diversity and inclusion. It will also present student-led initiatives contributing to the SDGs.
We look forward to seeing you there.
