Yesterday, April 26th, during the UN Global Compact Annual Conference in New Delhi, the Global Opportunity Explorer Platform was officially launched.
The platform is a joint project of Sustainia, DNV GL and the UN Global Compact, created with the aim of sharing hundreds of sustainable solutions and business opportunities addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SDGs are put at the centre of all the corporate solutions presented inside the Global Opportunity Explorer, with the belief that business plays significant role in making the world more sustainable by 2030.
Pirelli contributed to the platform presenting its business solution called “Sustainable Rubber Tapping that Improves Livelihoods” mainly linked to SDGs 4-Quality Education, 8-Decent Work and Economic Growth and 15-Life on Land.
The Natural Rubber Sustainability Program, activated in Indonesia with Kirana Megatara, was developed in order to spread awareness of the best growing and tapping techniques for rubber trees; this leads to higher revenues for farmers and lower rates for deforestation associated with unsustainable practices.
