Why is gender equality the most important Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to Unilever’s Paul Polman? How will SDG 9—industry, innovation and infrastructure—change how the United Nations approaches development? How can businesses help achieve the SDGs, and why should they?

At this year’s Ecosperity conference in Singapore, Eco-Business caught up with a number of the world’s leaders from business and civil society to find out what the SDGs mean to them, and how they are helping to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The SDGS, launched in 2015, are a set of 17 goals rolled out by the United Nations that aim to eradicate poverty, raise living standards and protect the environment by 2030.

Watch on to learn which SDGs inspire resonate with these leaders and how they’re turning inspiration to action.

“[My children] will live in a more harmonious world.”

Paul Polman, Chief Executive Officer, Unilever

“The challenges that we have – climate change, poverty alleviation, social inclusion, decent jobs, are of such magnitude that none of us can do it alone. So more than ever, we need to work together and make one plus one equal 11.”

Helen Hai, Goodwill Ambassador, United Nations Industrial Development Organization

“For me, it is the first time infrastructure and industrialisation are on the agenda of the United Nations. Which marks the United Nations’ move from traditional humanitarian development, to actually help(ing) those countries for their economic transformation.”
