Today’s society is characterized by a range of dynamic shifts and evolutions. WBCSD’s People & Society program provides insights & solutions that support companies in future-proofing their businesses by ensuring that their products, services, processes and conduct remain in tune with the needs, rights, goals and aspirations of society.
Today, WBCSD perceives inequality, together with the climate emergency and nature loss, to be one of the three most pressing challenges facing our society globally. Our work in this area explores drivers and solutions to inequality, catalyzing business action towards the realization of a world in which everyone’s dignity and rights are respected, basic needs are met, and equal opportunities are available for all.
Health and wellbeing are fundamental to people’s ability to live well. WBCSD believes that companies across all sectors have a critical role to play in advancing the highest attainable standards of health and wellbeing through efforts to: develop products, services and policies that ensure health is promoted and protected; support universal access to resilient and sustainable healthcare services; and guarantee workplaces that promote a culture of health and wellbeing.
Realization of the SDG will, in many cases, require radical systems change. However, the challenges that characterize this agenda are more than matched by the scale of the opportunity that they represent for business to engage more deeply as a strong and positive influence on society. We assist companies in understanding the implications of the SDGs and integrating them into their strategies.
