Private Sector Must Lead On Financing SDGs, U.N. SG Writes In Opinion Piece

Financial Times: Progress toward sustainable development is seriously off-track
António Guterres, secretary general of the United Nations

“…There has been some progress in the four years since the [Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)] were adopted. … But overall, we are seriously off-track. Hunger is rising, half the world’s people lack basic education and essential health care, women face discrimination and disadvantage everywhere. One reason for the faltering progress is the lack of financing. … We need business leaders to use their enormous influence to push for inclusive growth and opportunities. No one business can afford to ignore this effort, and there is no global goal that cannot benefit from private sector investment…” (11/4).
