In 2015, 193 UN member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including a commitment to ‘Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all’.

This publication articulates the business and development case for prioritising investment in lifelong learning, illustrated with stunning statistics. It also introduces our new corporate citizenship 2020 ambition ‘To inspire confidence and empower change through a global commitment to promoting and enabling lifelong learning’.

We share insights on how to unlock the power of cross-sector partnerships and we describe our global lifelong learning partnerships with not-for-profit organisations, along with a few of our national lifelong learning partnerships.

In addition, the publication draws on the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Industry Matrix publication series (jointly prepared by KPMG and the UN Global Compact) to highlight shared value opportunities for six industries to advance SDG 4 on Education and Lifelong Learning, illustrated with company examples.
