Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala: Business is Crucial for Sustainability


If business is not involved in delivering the Global Goals we will never get there says Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in this interview on CNN’s Quest Means Business. She shares her belief that, following the adoption of the 17 Global Goals by governments around the world at the end of September, we now need businesses all over the world working to meeting them, along-side government and civil society.

Dr. Okonjo-Iweala, the former Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance for Nigeria, also discusses the opportunities and impacts on emerging economies as the world works to combat climate change and develop sustainably.
