Global Enabling Sustainability Initiative (GeSI)
Economic development agency
Rond-point Robert Schuman 6, 1040 Bruxelles, Belgium
GeSI is the leading source for impartial, credible information on existing and emerging issues in the area of ICT and sustainability. We provide our members, industry stakeholders, policymakers, the corporate community and the general public with access to thought leadership, platforms, report and tools for social and environmental sustainability.
GeSI’s strategy focuses on three core pillars of impact that align with the SDGs:
Improving people's quality of life: it concerns the basic human need to live one's life in dignity, with enough to eat (SDG 2), in good health (SDG 3), and with an open and trained mind (SDG 4); flourishing in a world without violence (SDG 16).
Fostering equitable growth: it is about focusing on economic growth understood as an essential prerequisite for communities and individuals to prosper. They seek a world in which people have enough individual financial resources (SDG 1), where women are enabled to participate equally (SDG 5), where people are engaged in highly productive employment (SDG 8), facilitated by innovative infrastructure and environmentally-friendly industrialization (SDG 9) – while ensuring no one is left behind (SDG 10).
