The world is in urgent need of solutions to the world’s most pressing crises that only the private sector can deliver. This need represents a burgeoning market for business innovation, creativity and new technologies. Private sector leadership and multi-stakeholder partnerships are vital to creating the transformational change that humanity so desperately needs. Our participation in Davos aims to challenge and inspire the private sector to accelerate action on the Sustainable Development Goals to bridge the gap between converging challenges — a global pandemic, climate crisis, inequalities, conflict and disruptions in the global economy and supply chains — and the ambitious goals that can help businesses tackle them at scale.

The path before us is challenging, but when businesses work together for the common good, transformational change is possible.” – Sanda Ojiambo, Assistant Secretary-General and CEO of the UN Global Compact
