Mål 8.jpgA good business community is needed to create jobs and end poverty. In order to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, businesses must take social responsibility and care about more than just their bottom line.

Investment is important to business development, but it must be used to create and safeguard jobs, and there must be a focus on diversity and safe working conditions.
