Our World View

The Sustainable Development Goals are the roadmap for the global economy by 2030: to build an equitable and sustainable global economy that works for us all.

But since their launch, there has been only sporadic engagement with the Goals. Corporate leadership has varied widely and political leadership has been patchy.

Our goal is to change that dynamic.

The Goal 17 Partners are a network of executives and entrepreneurs integrating the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals into business models and practices.

The Goals need business leaders.

Our Mission

The Goals are a shared mission for a shared challenge: to build an economy that ends extreme poverty and protects our planet. The shared nature of the challenge and the solution is why the last of the 17 goals is about partnerships.

The Goal 17 Partners bring that spirit to life.

A safe harbor for action-minded executives, subject-matter experts, and civil society leaders who drive change as they develop business practices and models that advance the sustainable development goals.
