What is Vision 2045?

Goals to change the world
In 2015 the United Nations adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure all people enjoy peace and prosperity. The aim is to make substantial progress on these by 2045, the UN’s 100th anniversary. From good health to protecting the oceans, these Goals can only be achieved through inclusion and diversity, technological advances and the commitment of the business community.

Vision 2045 panel: Reduced inequalities
Our CEO J Schwan was to speak on a panel discussing how businesses are using technology to create equal opportunity in the world and how digital transformation can create a framework for reducing inequalities. But there was a change of plans. We recognized the lack of gender diversity on the panels and our ability to create equal opportunity in real time, so we passed the mic to our own amazingly talented Jennifer Crowley to represent Kin + Carta. The panel featured Kin + Carta alongside BSH Hausgeräte, Novartis and Tikehau Capital.Explore the key panel insights
