ACCELERATING THROUGHTS TO CONCRETE IDEAS

SDG Accelerator Innovation Lab 2018

On May 14-15, Plastix will participate in an Innovation Lab taking place at UN City in Copenhagen. It’s the next step in the Innovation Journey of the SDG Accelerator programme we are a part of. At the Innovation Lab, the 15 participating companies will conceptualise ideas into actionable concepts, plans and solutions based on global expertise from UNDP, Deloitte, academia and other subject experts. During the two days, we hope to be inspired and challenged with new perspectives to accelerate our business idea(s).

SDG Accelerator is a UNDP programme aiming to accelerate business solutions for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The programme is funded by The Danish Industry Foundation and will be tested in Denmark during 2018 and 2019 with 30 Danish small and medium-sized industrial companies. The aim is then to roll out across the Nordics and globally.

What is SDG Accelerator?

SDG Accelerator is a UNDP programme that aspires to accelerate business solutions for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The programme is funded by The Danish Industry Foundation and is tested in Denmark in 2018 and 2019 with 30 Danish small and medium-sized industrial companies and then the aim is to roll out across the Nordics and globally.

The SDG Accelerator runs for two years and offers the participating companies a unique opportunity for developing business solutions with a significant business potential and impact on the SDGs. Their work will be communicated to inspire other companies and make visible how the new global agenda for sustainable development can be operationalised in a business context, creating business benefits and impact on the SDGs.

We look forward to working together with UNDP, The Danish Industry Foundation, Monitor Deloitte and the other participating companies to build a better future for everyone through SDG Accelerator.
