(SINGAPORE) Don’t miss your chance to enter the CDL-GCSN Young SDG Leaders Award 2021
Sustainability has become a mainstream business agenda, and the COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the transition to build a more sustainable world. Global challenges such as poverty, climate change, biodiversity loss and gender inequality can be tackled through the convergence of will and commitment of businesses, as we build back better and greener. Studies show that responsible businesses committed to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) integration generally outperform those that are lagging in climate action and sustainability practices.
Are you aspiring to drive change in our society and accelerate businesses’ commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? If you believe that businesses can do good for the community and the environment while doing well financially, the CDL-GCNS Young SDG Leaders Awards is for you!
