The Global Enabling Sustainable Initiative (GeSI) is a partnership of ICT companies and industry associations "committed to creating and promoting technologies and practices that foster economic, environmental and social sustainability and drive economic growth and productivity." This report "explores how the development and deployment of digital technologies can catalyse progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)." It basically maps out how the industry groups plan to work with international agencies toward these goals. Only the summary (48 page PDF) is available, with the full report reserved for members (not exactly an auspicious start). See especially the 'roles' for the stakeholder groups (p.9) including governments, NGOs, and investors.
