This white paper, developed jointly by PwC, GMIS and UNIDO, sets out the business imperative for manufacturing businesses of achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and why global manufacturing organisations must align their strategy with the SDGs.
Of course businesses cannot achieve the SDGs by themselves. That is not their role. That is the role of government. But individual businesses – including global manufacturers - can help (or hinder) governments in achieving them. Governments will also turn to business to help them achieve the SDGs, not primarily through donations or philanthropic activity (although that will help too), but by reviewing and seeking inputs that help shape government policies and procedures impacting businesses.
