Climate Governance on Boards
In collaboration with PwC, WEF has published guiding principles to help the board of directors to steer climate risks and opportunities: the governance principles are designed to increase directors' climate awareness, embed climate issues into board structures and processes and improve navigation of the risks and opportunities that climate change poses to business.
Global Risks Report 2020
This WEF 2020 report describes risks from an unsettled geopolitical landscape, deteriorating economic and social stability, climate threats and accelerated biodiversity loss, unequal access to and lack of governance in the digital world, and our health systems coming under new pressures.
Sustainable Development Goals (UNDP)
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
The 17 SDGs are integrated - that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Through the pledge to Leave No One Behind, countries have committed to fast-track progress for those furthest behind first. That is why the SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing 'zeros', including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.
