The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a global roadmap for peace and prosperity, serving as a call to action for the most pressing social issues currently facing the planet and its people. It is important that businesses, in addition to governments, drive for results that contribute to the intent of the goals. In this session, we will outline how Edward Jones, a Fortune 500 investment firm, has begun to incorporate the SDG’s into their business practices, philanthropy strategy, culture, and corporate goal setting.
