This year, the SDG Business Forum, will be held in conjunction with Uniting Business LIVE, 19-21 September 2022. The SDG Business Forum will take place on 21 September from 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM ET.
As one of the most prestigious High-Level gatherings of business leaders at the United Nations, the SDG Business Forum offers a unique opportunity to drive pivotal momentum towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals – and leveraging the power of the private sector to contribute positively towards international priorities. This year’s virtual forum will provide a platform for meaningful dialogue on the role of the private sector in co-creating lasting solutions to multiple crises in the short term and building a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient future while effectively managing our collective impact on global environmental commons. It will also provide a unique opportunity for business leaders to hear from members of the Independent Group of Scientists appointed by the Secretary-General to draft the upcoming 2023 Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR), one of the only two reports mandated to inform the mid-term review of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs at the General Assembly next year.
Who is invited?
Everyone, everywhere has a role to play in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and, as a gathering space for influencers and innovators, the Business Forum is no different. After a successful inaugural virtual forum in 2020, we expect more than 10,000 attendees to participate in this year's Forum. From C-suite executives to rising professionals, leaders across the entire spectrum of the business ecosystem are invited to attend. Government officials, United Nations representatives and civil society organizations with an interest in private sector action are also welcome to participate in the program to gain inspiration and ideas for how best to collaborate with businesses to achieve shared goals.
