> *Panel Description*: 'UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals - Impacts on
> Companies and their Stakeholders'
> Between 2000 and 2015, the Millennium Development Goals were powerful
> tools in setting the development agenda for nations, municipalities,
> companies and their stakeholders.  They set time-bound quantifiable targets
> addressing the various aspects of extreme poverty, gender equality,
> education and environmental sustainability.  In the last 15 years, the
> world has taken major strides towards achieving many of these goals,
> notably by helping to lift more than one billion people out of extreme
> poverty, reducing hunger, enabling more girls to attend school than ever
> before and to protect our planet. While there is still progress to be made,
> they were effective in generating new and innovative partnerships,
> galvanizing public opinion and showing the immense value of setting
> ambitious goals and measuring progress toward achieving them.
> They also provided strong leadership for business.  The MDGs helped shape
> systems of sustainability reporting and accountability, such as the GRI
> framework; they have focused more attention on developing KPIs for
> sustainability, on ESG metrics, and on moving corporate valuation away from
> simple short term financial quarterly reports and towards a broader look at
> social value and environmental  risks.
> As we embark on the post-2015 development agenda, the newly launched
> Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will set the agenda for global action
> for the next fifteen years.  The SDGs cover a broadened range of
> sustainable development topics with 17 goals and 169 specific targets.
> They expand on the 8 previous goals (poverty and hunger, education, gender
> equality, maternal health, child mortality, HIV-AIDS, environmental
> sustainability, global partnership) and incorporate new goals and targets
> related to sustainable energy, economic growth and employment, resilient
> infrastructure, inequality, improvement of cities and settlements,
> sustainable consumption and production, climate change, sustainability of
> the seas and ecosystems, and a promotion of peaceful, inclusive societies.
> This discussion will address what the new SDGs mean for the business
> community, seeking to answer:
>    - How will the SDGs push the sustainability agenda forward, involving
>    companies as partners?
>    - What are resources for companies seeking to align their corporate
>    responsibility goals with the SDGs?
>    - What impact will they have on the development of legislation or
>    incentives affecting companies?
> *About the Sponsors:*
> *The Sustainability Practice Network* (SPN) is a New York based
> inter-disciplinary community of professionals who seek to learn and share
> knowledge to advance sustainable development across sectors and
> disciplines. We mobilize our members to practice sustainability in their
> lives and work. Our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of
> individual and corporate sustainability and thereby create a more stable
> and equitable world.
> *Baruch College - Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity*
> The Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity is a forum for
> discussion of a broad range of contemporary issues confronting US
> corporations and capital markets. Our concerns include: transparency of
> corporate reporting, corporate governance, examining legal and ethical
> corporate behavior, spotlighting executive accountability, corporate
> responsibility in global business development, risk assessment and
> amelioration, resolving conflicting corporate stakeholder interests, and
> evaluating the role of governmental regulation.
