In 2015, the United Nations released its Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, which contains the better-known Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are aimed at creating a more sustainable future in multiple ways.

Unfortunately, while many major corporations support the goals, implementation is lagging, with the SDGs unlikely to be achieved by 2030.

We’ve selected a number of research papers which analyse why this might be so, and call on a range of stakeholders to get active.

The articles are free to read in a special issue of the Journal of Business Ethics, 2022, 180(4).
