Sustainable Development Goals are a $12 trillion opportunity in 2030
According to a report ‘Valuing the SDG Prize‘, from AlphaBeta commissioned by the Business and Sustainable Development Commission, business opportunities in the implementation of the SDGs in four systems – food and agriculture; cities; energy and materials; and health and well-being – could be worth more than US$12 trillion annually for the private sector in 2030. This represents 10 percent of forecasted global output in that year.
Further, the report identifies 60 opportunities that could generate almost 380 million jobs. This represents more than 10 percent of the forecasted labour force in 2030.
