"For thirty years now I have worked professionally and internationally with sustainable development, ever since the idea was introduced in the Brundtland Report, published in 1987. The concept of sustainable development focused the world’s attention on finding strategies to promote economic and social advancement in ways that avoid environmental degradation, over-exploitation or pollution.

With the UN's adoption of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), sustainable development has been clarified, made operational and measurable.

Together with the SDG Compass, the tools and know-how have now been created to make the SDG’s a key element in sustainability strategy. "
