At the November 2017 UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn, Germany, countries took important steps to rapidly implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement and non-Party stakeholders made some major action announcements in support of the Paris Agreement and the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
Although fundamentally it will be down to governments to tackle SDG implementation at a national level, the goals simply will not be achieved without meaningful action by business. Business has a key role to play as an engine of economic growth and employment and a source of finance, technology and innovation.
Our mission is to be a catalyst for innovation and sustainable growth. We provide a platform for companies to share experiences and develop best practises on sustainable development issues. Collectively, we advocate for action by partnering with governments, non-governmental and intergovernmental organisations.
