December 17, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

A Business Roundtable – Inclusive Multilateralism in 2020: A Vital Synergy

Tuesday, December 17, 2019 from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm at the Harvard Club (35 W 44th St, New York)

Please RSVP by December 11 to Claudia Herbert Colfer with Crys Won in copy to confirm your participation.

Please join USCIB and the USCIB Foundation for a Business Roundtable Discussion on Inclusive Multilateralism on December 17 at the Harvard Club in New York. Next year, the United Nations will take important decisions with implications for the private sector on:

  • Legally binding frameworks on Biodiversity and Climate Change
  • Reform in the Structure and Substance of SDG talks and initiatives

The UN will also launch important initiatives calling for business experience and engagement, including:

  • The UN Decade of Delivery and Action:
  • The UN75 Process: a global conversation on the role of global cooperation in building the future

In addition to overviewing these developments, this Roundtable will present an update on USCIB initiatives to bring U.S. business perspectives, achievements and innovation to next year’s international decision-making deliberations on several fronts.

The meeting will highlight 2020 activities of USCIB’s All In Campaign, focused on advocating inclusive multilateralism that advances collaboration between public and private sectors to meet international commitments and pledges. In addition to All In, the program will also describe several initiatives that support USCIB’s mission to define business as a force for good and an essential partner and agent of change under the UN Sustainable Development Goals including:

  • Forging a Pathway to Trust: How Public-Private Engagement Can Find Its Footing.  A report that aims to break down some of the impediments to better public and private engagement toward tangible and shared social impacts offering specific proposals leading to action and impact.
  • Future of Work.  A report-out from the first in a series of peer-to-peer dialogues bringing U.S.-based multinational corporations from an array of industry sectors together for discussion on framing the broader policy and programmatic context for Future of Work (FoW) initiatives.
  • Center for Business Partners for Sustainable Development (BPSD). A virtual Center for advancing international public – private partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by establishing a framework for government, business and civil society to share information, resources, activities and capabilities to achieve things together that they could not achieve alone.
