NEWS FROM ETHICS & SDGs COMMISSION
Steve Jobs once said: “The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” We currently are not only living an era of change, but a change of era.
While sustainability is in the limelight like never before, digital and technological innovations are creating a range of new opportunities in the context of achieving the SDGs.
Within the current ecological, economic and cultural crisis lies a golden opportunity for European businesses to make both: impact and profit.
In order to achieve sustainable success and enhance their competitiveness globally, European businesses will further have to engage in adaptive business models, identify the right partners for their ventures, create inclusive alliances and broaden their appeal to an international audience by building bridges to emerging markets. At the EU Tech Ethics & SDGs Commission, we see it as our goal to accompany businesses on their journey.
