The United Nations 2030 Agenda ‘End poverty, protect the planet, ensure prosperity for all’ is backed by 17 Sustainable Development Goals, each with hard, measurable targets.
Targets that are impacting each and every business, regardless of size or geographic location, as a combination of public pressure and formal legislation comes into effect to achieve the demanding targets.
And yet awareness of the UN Agenda and the SDGs is low, despite the imminent Government benchmarking report.
Which is why 2030hub is raising awareness through our ‘2030hub SDG Tour: How businesses can benefit’.
- Why is the UN Agenda such high priority?
- What are the Sustainable Development Goals?
- How doing good is good for business
- How your business can benefit
Presented by David Connor, Founder 2030hub

Built around the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (or Global Goals) the 2030hub cross-fertilises passionate local with national and international people across all sectors.
