I am pleased to send my best wishes to the Smarthead Sustainability Summit.
Our planet faces severe economic, social and environmental challenges, including a global climate emergency.
The Sustainable Development Goals offer us a plan of action.
More and more, the private sector is seeing the potential of climate action, green technology and sustainable business models.
This is both heartening and critical.
Simply put: what is good for people and planet is also good for business.
I urge you all to embrace the 2030 Agenda as a driver of your business strategies, innovation and investment decisions.
And I ask you to announce new corporate decarbonization plans in line with the goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees.
Together, we can usher in a safer, more prosperous and sustainable world for all.
