Responsible Boards for A Sustainable Future

“Trust is the essence of good governance and the foundation of sustainable development.” 2015 has been a milestone for a sustainable future: The world leaders adopted the Sustainable Development Goals at the UN Sustainable Development Summit September 25 -27, 2015 in New York. The title of the agenda was "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". In November 2015, under the Turkish presidency, the G20's focus was on ensuring inclusive and robust growth through collective action in accordance with the “three I's” - Implementation, Inclusiveness, and Investment for growth. In December, an enduring, legally binding treaty on climate action which contains emission reduction commitments from nearly 200 countries starting in 2020 was signed to keep the global warming below the 2°C level, and even target actions to achieve the below the 1,5°C level. This represents a turning point for action to limit climate change below dangerous levels. It signals the end of business as usual. Future investment will need to be compatible with a zero-carbon world.
