PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

19 September 2022

Since 2008, the UN Secretary-General’s annual Private Sector Forum has gathered global leaders at the United Nations on the first day of the UN General Assembly week to address major global issues such as climate change, sustainable development and human rights. To show unity and support for the Secretary General's Global Crisis Response Group on Food, Energy and Finance, this year’s Private Sector Forum will gather representatives of UN Member States and development agencies with the most dedicated CEOs and CFOs of Global Compact companies, to mobilize the private sector’s response to these interlinked crises. These challenging times present an opportunity to renew our public-private partnerships for the SDGs and support investments in critical solutions for the SDGs around food, water, energy, finance and education. Governments and businesses must work together to tackle these pressing issues and ensure that no one is left behind.

This year we will hear directly from Local Networks on the state of progress on our Global Impact Initiatives. You will hear Governments on their advancements through multi-stakeholder partnerships, from UN and civil society leaders on their vision to scale collective impact, and from business - from executive level to young SDG innovators – on how their actions are leading to meaningful progress towards the achievement of the SDGs.
