With less than ten years to deliver on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, businesses and institutions must take the lead in balancing our human aspirations with the planet’s ability to sustain them.

The first phase of the strategic, multi-year partnership will be announced and launched in October 2021. It will combine Infosys’ groundbreaking digital services and capabilities with the strength and depth of The Economist Group’s global policy research, insights and events expertise.
By leveraging their collective strengths as two organisations with a shared commitment to sustainable business practices, the partnership will see The Economist Group and Infosys advance sustainability dialogue and inspire action towards creating a better, more sustainable world.
