  • Swiss Boards for Agenda 2030 (#SBA2030)

    B Lab Switzerland and InTent have developed the Swiss Boards for Agenda 2030 (#SBA2030), an alliance of CEOs and board members committing their companies to take action by training two third of their board to sustainability, changing company bylaws to enhance social and environmental responsibility, making credible commitments on the SDGs and attending an annual #sba2030 roundtable to engage in collective actions.
