Achieving sustainability is possible. The adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 and the Paris Agreement in the same year created a new impetus for the debate on how to do so. The SMART project has submitted its introductory report about how we support the transition to sustainability.
At this stakeholder meeting we will present our proposals for how to make it possible and easy for business and finance to create value in a sustainable manner, and for products to be produced and consumed in a way that contributes to securing a safe and just space for humanity within planetary boundaries.
We welcome all interested, including academics, policy-makers, business, investors, civil society, students and journalists. The event will be concluded with a light lunch. Please register here.
