Crossroads: Business & Society

A forum by the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society

The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society at INSEAD explores the intersection of business and society. The challenges of our times are unprecedented, and the decisions made by leaders today determine the future. The aim of HGIBS is to equip these leaders to make decisions in ways that deliver positive outcomes for business, communities, people and our planet in line with globally agreed sustainability goals.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, offer a cohesive and centralised framework for discussing a new development model that is good for all people and the planet. INSEAD is aligning more closely with the SDGs as more business leaders engage with the SDGs, using the 17 global goals to account for their contributions to society.

This series provides much needed clarity regarding what the SDGs mean for strategies, operations and business models.
