Finding Opportunity in the Sustainable Development Goals

By Margo Mosher


At first glance, you might imagine that the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals are best tackled by governments and non-profits, but the reality is that businesses have a crucial role to play.

SustainAbility’s Director Margo Mosher, who is a member of The New York Academy of Sciences, shares the story of how she shifted her focus from education to the business community in order to scale her positive impact on the environment. The video also features Sarah Hill, Associate Director of Sustainability at BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), who talks about the many upsides for businesses pursuing the Sustainable Development Goals.
