Why 2030?

Fast Forward 2030 was launched in 2015 by Professor Dame Henrietta Moore, Director of University College London’s Institute for Global Prosperity, and Arthur Kay, Chief Executive of bio-bean. It has since been recognised by the U.N Global Compact, with Arthur Kay being named as one of ten SDG pioneers in 2017. Arthur Kay, who is also Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Institute for Global Prosperity, was named an SDG pioneer due to being a "key voice in mobilizing the broader business community to take on the SDGs by setting up Fast Forward 2030", according to Lise Kingo, UN Global Compact CEO.
