Hosted by Covestro, this day-long event aims to explore how the Pittsburgh region can leverage a purpose-driven approach to introduce and accelerate sustainable business development, public-private partnerships and social innovation in Pittsburgh. The 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) provide a framework for “achieving sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner” by 2030.

As part of Covestro’s i3 (ignite, imagine, innovate) corporate social responsibility initiative, THINC30 aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Introduce the 17 UNSDGs to the wider Pittsburgh region, particularly business and industry, and showcase how they can be advanced by leveraging the growing need for purpose among individuals, organizations and businesses.
  • Explore how business and industry are responding to employees’ desire for more purpose in their work and lives to improve their communities and society at large.
  • Showcase the Pittsburgh region as a national purpose leader with bleeding edge ideas, solutions and strategies for companies and communities interested in formally embedding innovation, sustainable business development, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and community building into their missions.
  • Issue a call to action to business and industry to cultivate their purpose – and that of their employees’ or citizen philanthropists – to accelerate sustainable business development, public-private partnerships and social innovation around the 17 United National Sustainable Development Goals.

In addition to spotlighting regional best practice programs and featuring sustainability and CSR business executives, philanthropic leaders, and social entrepreneurs, the summit also will convene national and international thought leaders as keynote speakers, featured panelists and interviewees to provide aspiration, inspiration and motivation.
