The Role of Business in Education and Training for Sustainable Development
Business has a strong incentive to contribute more fully to strengthening training and education for sustainable development. Progress on the SDGs is directly linked to the growing business opportunities and risks presented by economic, social and environmental trends. Companies can gain a competitive advantage by equipping their employees with the skills and knowledge needed to make the most of the opportunities ahead.
This report is primarily written for business and its role in supporting education and the SDGs. It is also meant to support the education community and other organisations with a stake in advancing education and training for sustainable development. The report shares a selection of good practice examples and insights that are intended to help raise awareness, spark new ideas and inspire more opportunities for collaboration.
