On the 16th of January 2017 the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, launched at the World Economic Forum in 2016, released the report Better Business, Better World.

The report maps the economic prize for companies that align with the SDGs, and shows how to achieve them.

In alignment with the principles of shared value driving PSHP Kenya, the report highlights how the SDGs offer a compelling growth strategy for individual businesses, for business generally and for the world economy.

The role of the private sector

The private sector plays a crucial role in achieving the SDGs: unless private companies seize the market opportunities they open up and advance progress on the whole Global Goals package, the abundance they offer won’t materialise. The commission estimates that US$12 trillion of market opportunities can be opened by realising the SDGs, but its more then just the financial gains. Achieving the SDGs would create a world that is comprehensively sustainable: socially fair; environmentally secure; economically prosperous; inclusive; and more predictable, for the benefit of both business and society.
