The scale and ambition of the SDG agenda creates a tremendous opportunity for the private sector to demonstrate the central role it plays in sustainable development and human prosperity. Lessons need to be learned from the MDG experience on how to best catalyse private sector activity, particularly because the SDGs will be far more ambitious than the MDGs in that they will go beyond core needs and touch upon virtually every aspect of human existence and will apply universally, to all UN Member States, not just developing countries.
"It is the absence of broad-based business activity, not its presence, which condemns much of humanity to suffering. Indeed, what is utopian is the notion that poverty can be overcome without the active engagement of business."
Kofi Annan, Former UN Secretary-General, 14 June 2005

Key businesses who have adopted responsible business practices and look at some of the solutions these organisations are offering.
How can business contribute to the implementation of the SDGs?
Business is called upon to join in this momentous endeavour to implement the Sustainable Development Goals. Visionary and forward-looking companies must take the lead in pushing the sustainable development agenda forward, and make the case for business very where to join in the effort to achieve the SDGs.
This post-2015 development agenda presents a historic opportunity for businesses to engage as a strong and positive influence on society. Responsible businesses can provide an extraordinary boost in realizing the SDGs through innovation, investment, a mass customer base and a global labour force. The SDGs, in turn, can amplify the opportunity for business to be successful by improving the enabling environment and by providing inspiration, direction and a platform for more effective partnerships.
