The SDGs are estimated to cost US$3 trillion per year to achieve, and much of this will need to come from private resources. Long-term investments are needed in sustainable energy, infrastructure, transport, and information and communications technologies, among other sectors.
As with all social and environmental imperatives, business contributes vitally to success or failure. Businesses increasingly embed positive social impact and sustainability as legitimate business priorities and as a source of competitive advantage. In order to amplify the success and visibility of forward thinking businesses, The GSC has presented The Half-Billion Dollars Challenge.
