Business Action on Sustainable Development Goals

The side event "Business Action on Sustainable Development Goals" was co-hosted by the Permanent Mission of Denmark to the United Nations, UN Global Compact, Global Reporting Initiative, and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development. It brought together UN missions, UN agencies, NGOs, and business organizations to discuss concrete actions on how the private sector can be engaged in the SDG process. It presented the WBCSD–UNGC–GRI alliance and briefed the audience about the undergoing development of its expected outcome: an implementation guide. The implementation guide will be designed to inform companies on impact assessment, KPI selection and goal setting, which will assist businesses in measuring and reporting their contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals.
