The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a golden opportunity to embrace globally agreed upon language and a framework to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.” This webinar incorporates a LinkedIn conversation about the extraordinary range of initiatives and challenges in advancing the goals.  And while many organizations are already on their SDG journey, the rate of progress is far slower than needed to meet the 2030 targets.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a golden opportunity to embrace globally agreed upon language and a framework to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.”  This webinar will continue the conversation from a recent LinkedIn conversation about the extraordinary range of initiatives and challenges in advancing the goals.  And while many organizations are already on their SDG journey, the rate of progress is far slower than needed to meet the 2030 targets.

We sat down with two former ISSP Board Presidents - Marilyn Johnson, Brand VO2, VP Platform Innovation and Jeff Yorzyk, Green Chef, Director of Sustainability to discuss numerous ways that Sustainability Professionals can engage with and support the Sustainable Development Goals.

PRESENTERS:

She now leads innovation at Brand VO2, a market-leading software platform deriving brand and business insight from online conversations.
