The first point is asking you to look at The UN development goals] and discuss which ones you think are key (most important) in relation to responsible enterprise. All of them are important, but you might feel that some are more relevant to the topic of your essay. For example, 11, 12 and 15 are instantly recognisable as relevant. Number 6 might initially seem less relevant - but then you might consider that businesses use water, and so it would be responsible of them to not waste the clean water, and for them to dispose of their waste in a way that doesn't contaminate water supplies.

Private enterprises exist to make money, and sometimes it can be cheaper to do things in a non-sustainable way. For example, look at Mr Burns - he's cutting costs by having a useless safety inspector, dumping rubbish in the local lake and woods, and generally operating in a way that's bad. But he's very, very rich. Moe's bar is operating in a way that helps the local wildlife population. But it doesn't matter how many rats Moe can feed, because his efforts are wiped out by the impact of Mr Burns' activities.

You can find a basic definition of sustainable development here, and responsible enterprise would be working in a sistainable way.
