I am proud to be an Ambassador of the WBA. The work of the WBA is hugely impactful as I believe that goals that are set in private end up failing as business leaders stop being motivated, stop focussing and stop prioritising. By providing an objective public measurement tool of SDG compliance, WBA instils a better sense of performance and accountability in a fast changing and complex world. This is less about consequences and punishment and more about aspirations and empowerment.
