At the end of 2016, CSIRO and Global Initiatives conducted an e-survey of businesses and their partners in Southeast Asia that explored business perspectives on innovation and the SDGs.The purpose of the study was to try and get a snapshot of broad patterns and trends, identify emerging issues that warrant further investigation and, more importantly, use these initial findings to start a wider discussion on business-led innovation and the SDGs, and the pathway for accelerating this.
Some of the key findings from the survey included:
- SDG drivers and business drivers are starting to overlap
- Different types of innovation are important, but policy innovation is more so.
- Innovation drivers for business are in step with the SDGs.
