Marga Hoek is a member of Thinkers50. She is that rare combination: a true visionary on sustainable business and capital and a successful, innovative business leader who understands and applies the commercial realities of business. Marga is also the award-winning author of The Trillion Dollar Shift.
The Trillion Dollar Shift is the first-ever business book on the opportunities the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals open to business and capital. It features over 50 inspiring business case studies, across every sector – from agriculture to energy to ICT and advanced technologies.
They explore how businesses – from global giant Unilever to ground-breaking social enterprises like Grunfos, GSMA and Evaptainers – are tackling challenges, successfully working towards sustainable development goals and strategizing for the future.
Marga is considered one of the most influential thought leaders leading the way in the transition towards a sustainable world. She is unique in demonstrating how today’s ICT’s and technological innovations can be a huge force for good and has a strong track record in the financial sector.
