Lead, Transform, Succeed: Chief Sustainability Officers for SDGs
Wednesday, 17 July 2019
9:00 AM - 1:00 PM
ECOSOC Chamber

Special event

2019 represents a landmark year for taking stock of SDG progress. As the United Nations prepares to deliver its Global Sustainable Development Report that will provide in-depth analysis of SDG progress over the course of the past four years, it is also important for the private sector to explore how it can continue to step up and scale its efforts to ensure long term prosperity for people and planet on the road to 2030.

Building on the success of previous years, WBCSD and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), will once again jointly convene this event to bring together Chief Sustainability Officers and sustainable business leaders to explore practical solutions around how we can bring about the transformation of some of the world’s key economic systems to realize the ambitions of the SDG agenda. The event will provide the opportunity to engage in deep-dive discussions around some of the challenges in integrating the SDGs into business strategy and underline ground-breaking examples of collaboration for achieving impact at scale.

If you are a sustainability champion looking to get your burning questions answered, benefit from networking with like-minded peers, and unlock new opportunities, then join us at this year’s main business event at the High-level Political Forum.
