September 24, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The United States Council for International Business (USCIB) in partnership with the IFPMA
“I urge the private sector to take its place at the table and plot a path forward for the next 15 years, reaffirming once again that responsible business is a force for good.” – Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon
Please join the United States Council for International Business and its partner organizations to celebrate the official public launch of USCIB’s Businessfor2030.org – a public resource to help achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals by stimulating a more productive partnership between the public and private sectors.
Featuring over 80 examples of implemented initiatives all over the world organized in relation to over 50 of the business-relevant SDG targets, Businessfor2030 highlights concrete initiatives and partnerships to inspire renewed trust in the private sector and catalyze sustained and active business engagement in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. USCIB member companies and international business representatives will engage with the broader development community to provide deeper context to a selection of the diverse examples featured on Businessfor2030 with a focus on:
- The Critical Role of Infrastructure (energy/transport, health, ICT and finance) in catalyzing progress on the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
- The Need to Transform Partnerships Globally and Locally through enhanced national development strategic planning and coordination for achieving the SDGs.
Participants will include U.N. Member State and Agency representatives and corporate and civil society representatives. A detailed concept note and background materials will follow in early September.
Reception to follow.
