Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
Creating value in a connected world is the basis of a new shared value economy. Organisational actions extend beyond immediate outcomes, and leaders/managers need to be aware of the inter-connectivity between decision making and long-term consequences. To more deeply understand this link, this paper uses the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a framework, focusing on understanding and enacting organisational change that shapes positive societies. The SDGs can help organisations define its aspirational purpose in a way that is relevant and inspiring to stakeholders, allow purpose to become the foundation for its strategy, and ignite long-lasting positive change that may increase stakeholder value over the long term. We examine each of the SDGs and explore examples of ordinary organisations engaging in extra-ordinary activities for planetary flourishing.
