Foster business contribution to the SDGs at national level
Side Event to the United Nations High Level Political Forum 2020 co-hosted by the Government of Colombia, Government of the Netherlands and GRI.
In order to ensure the implementation of the SDGs, it is crucial to address the private sector’s impact and contribution to the Goals. Engaging business in the process will ultimately accelerate the transition towards a sustainable and resilient society by maximizing positive impacts and enabling cooperation.
The side-event will offer the opportunity to show how a partnership between different actors of societies, including government, private sector, UN entity and an organization can drive forward the actions on the SDGs. Both government and business representatives will contribute to the discussion.
