The Sustainable Development Goals are a blueprint to achieve a socially just and environmentally sustainable future for all.

They offer urgent solutions to many of the global challenges we face and now they must be widely used to help future-proof and rebuild better after the pandemic. As of 2020, we are on a ten-year plan to achieve these goals.
Liverpool is home to one of the eight Local 2030 hubs in the world, working with New York and other major cities around the world to find sustainable ways to tackle poverty, improve health, education, economic growth and tackle climate change.
Liverpool announced in July 2020 that it had committed to the SDGs, as part of its pledge to become a zero carbon city by 2030.
Liverpool has set six of the 17 goals as its level one priority actions – no poverty; good health and wellbeing; decent work and economic growth; reduced inequalities; sustainable cities and communities; climate action; zero hunger; quality education; peace, justice and strong institutions.
Local businesses are in a unique position to deliver the goals being on the frontline of many of the challenges the SDGs seek to resolve. It is vital that businesses learn how to use the SDGs to support this decade of action. In this session learn why we need businesses worldwide to set goals, how track progress and accelerate action towards achieving the SDGs.


The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about everyone working towards a better world – no matter where you’re starting from.
