S&C in collaboration with Yale University, Center for Business and the Environment, has developed and managed a worldwide survey on sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The survey is financed by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety as part of the support program “Export Initiative for Environmental Technologies”.
Approx. 27,000 people from 174 countries participated. The results show that the SDGs are barely known – also among business representatives. The results have been presented, among other things, on September 5th on the 12th Convergences World Forum in Paris and at a side event of the UN SDG Summit in New York on September 26th.
The result report can be downloaded now at the Global Survey website.
