The coronavirus pandemic has shown once more the need for a rapid and sustainable transformation. Sustainability is not
the only answer to our global needs, but is crucial to rebuilding
our productive systems hit by COVID-19 and make them more
resilient, sustainable, and innovative.

At ecoSurge we believe in the advantage of placing UN SDGs
at businesses’ core through digital and business innovation,
and active cooperation (SDG 17). Only together we will be able
to respond to today's challenges due to a more uncertain and
vulnerable society.
