Sustainability leaders driving exponential change and transformational shifts at their organisations for the decade of action
Visionary heroes

Achieving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will require bolder action, a shift in mindset and innovations to bring about such transformational change.

A clear and common purpose, and a heroic collaborative effort, will inspire others to achieve the necessary progress in this decade of action.

Together with the UN Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein, we speak to Chief Sustainability Officers and sustainability leaders about what they are doing to bring about exponential change at their organisation to lead us to the bright future we all want for us and future generations.
