The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have already sparked a new wave of thinking and practical action around how business leaders can act collectively with governments and civil society to address the world’s most pressing problems. The framework of the SDGs has helped prioritise, energise and focus business goals, broker political and cross-sector collaboration, and redefine competitive advantage.

What does corporate purpose look like in the context of the ‘new normal’ and what must business leaders do now to ensure that corporate responsibility is not hindered by the crisis? What sort of lessons from the COVID-19 response will inform and strengthen effective strategy in the future?
