Opening Session – Talks: Why?

Jim Hagemann Snabe, Chairman Siemens og A.P. Møller-Mærsk

In the Opening Session,  Jim Hagemann Snabe will talk about Why the Global Goals are changing business and transforming the world:

‘Business as usual’ is no longer an option. The Global Goals are the new terms for modern corporate strategies and business models where innovation is an essential factor.

The companies that can create innovative, sustainable solutions, with the UN Global Goals as guidelines, will experience rising demand and can look forward to getting their share of a huge market worth billions and at the same time create a better world for future generations.

This requires new partnerships, actions and mindsets. It has never been more important for us, as business leaders, to be aware of our responsibility.
