The Global Opportunity Network and Reports are the products of collaboration between DNV GL, UN Global Compact and Sustainia. As  partners behind this initiative, we share a vision of a safer and more sustainable world and wish to inspire collaboration and action towards making it a reality.

To depict the opportunities presented in the Global Opportunity Reports as concretely as possible, we have matched each opportunity with a range of existing initiatives from around the world. Sustainia has contributed many of these solutions from its broad database of inspiring sustainable innovations.

The project is inclusive by nature. For opportunities to reach their full potential, multiple stakeholders need to engage and work together. Consequently, we wish to work with individuals, organizations, and businesses that share our ambition.

How to engage

  • We engage insightful individuals and organisations by means of our opportunity panels and advisory board.
  • We are shaping the Global Opportunity Network into a focal point for the growing interest in the solutions and opportunities that arise from the transition to a more sustainable society.
  • We engage in partnerships with organisations that share the same ambitions and values.

The UN Global Compact is a call to companies everywhere to voluntarily align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anticorruption, and to take action in support of UN goals and issues. Endorsed by chief executives, the UN Global Compact is a leadership platform for the development, implementation, and disclosure of responsible corporate policies and practices. Launched in 2000, it is the largest corporate-sustainability initiative in the world — with more than 12,000 signatories from business and key stakeholder groups in 150 countries, and more than 80 local networks.





Sustainia is a sustainability think tank working to secure deployment of sustainable solutions that improve quality of life in communities around the world.
