International Business Council in collaboration with UNDP held open meeting on Role of business in sustainable development.
Business community welcomes the efforts of the United Nations (UN) in promoting stakeholders’ initiatives in achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The final document on Sustainable Development for the period until 2030 consisted of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, one of which deals with "strengthening the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development". As noted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, "The world needs an international financial framework that is predictable and effective in meeting these challenges and achieving sustainable and inclusive development", and the role of business in this issue is inseparable.
The business community believes that it is necessary to raise awareness of all stakeholders, in particular businesses, about partnerships opportunities to promote sustainable development.
