A rapidly growing number of people in responsible positions in business and politics is convinced that the current form of business must change and become sustainable. At the same time, more and more young people are turning away from companies that lack such a vision and an associated way of acting.
For the transformation to a sustainable world, a global framework has been created: the 2030 Agenda. It opens huge, largely untapped market potentials and acts as a trigger for the demand for sustainable solutions worldwide.
The 2030 Agenda was adopted by the UN in 2015. 17 closely linked economic, ecological, and social goals are intended to improve the lives of all people and, at the same time, preserve the natural foundations of life.
The implementation of 17 challenging goals with 169 sub-goals must be "managed" on large and small scales, including partnerships and other forms of cooperation on financial, technological, economic and institutional levels - an extensive field of work for "Experience & Expertise".
Industrial technologies, politics and behavioral changes are the main levers for mitigating climate change. Like most measures to adapt to climate change (water is at the top of the agenda here), they harbor considerable potential for conflict. And, of course, to a large extent it is all about financing issues.
To cope with these challenges, human and institutional capacities, solution-oriented creativity, efficient work structures and economic expertise are needed.
