Creating A Sustainable Future

Synopsis:

How 12 disruptive technologies can help organisations meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Technology innovation has been one of the great drivers of progress for humanity. From accessing clean water and manufacturing sustainably, to reducing poverty and ensuring health and well-being for all, we’ve turned to technology. In an increasingly crowded and connected world however, the barriers to progress can appear impossibly difficult. And we now face a set of systemic challenges of a scale and complexity not seen before.

The UN Global Compact’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set an ambitious and transformative vision for peace and prosperity on a healthy planet. They are pledges to overcome some of the biggest challenges the world faces by 2030. Challenges like poverty, inequality and environmental degradation.

Achieving the SDGs will also create an estimated $12 trillion a year in economic growth, 50 per cent of which will be in developing nations. But to get there we urgently need to disrupt the status quo. Business as usual is not enough. We need breakthrough solutions.

Disruptive technologies have the potential to help

As part their work with the UN Global Compact, PA Consulting has created executive briefs for 12 disruptive technologies that can help meet the SDGs.
