About the Event:

To efficiently contribute to the creation of a more prosperous planet, sustainability needs to be embedded in a company’s DNA. This can be a challenging task, especially for departments who do not directly work on sustainability issues.

The UN Global Compact Network USA will host The Business Breakdown of the SDGs webinar series to provide companies with the opportunity to integrate the SDGs into each core function of their business. This series aims to help non-sustainability professionals integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into their work. By ‘breaking down’ a business by function in each webinar, the series is designed to provide department-specific insight, knowledge, and inspiration needed to make a positive impact on the company’s SDG strategy.

The series kicks off with a crash course to introduce all business representatives to the seemingly complex world of ESG and the SDGs. This 1-hour crash course will be taught by the leader who coined the term ‘ESG’, Mr. Paul Clements-Hunt. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.

Paul Clements-Hunt founded The Blended Capital Group in March 2012 and remains Non-Executive Chair. He splits his time between home in Nairobi and London where he is a Director of Mishcon Purpose, the sustainability arm of the UK head-quartered law firm, Mishcon de Reya LLP. Paul, trained as a journalist,created his first company, Environmental Business Group (EBG) Co., Ltd in Bangkok, Thailand in 1992. For thirty years, through roles in business, the United Nations and as an entrepreneur, his focus has been on how to mobilize finance and capital at scale into sustainable development. Paul has private equity holdings in last mile impact businesses where digital, technology, and sustainability developments merge.
