Showcase Member Action at the United Nations
ICC Headquarters is reaching out to seek your support for an exciting ICC initiative ahead of this year’s United Nations’ High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) – the UN’s central platform to review implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This year’s HLPF will be held at UN Headquarters in New York from 9 – 18 July 2019.
The HLPF presents an important opportunity for business to showcase its contribution to the implementation of the SDGs and to influence the development of policy frameworks around the 2030 Agenda. To this end, ICC will produce an ICC report detailing business actions, initiatives and recommendations, following on from the success of the ICC Business Action for Sustainable and Resilient Societies report presented at HLPF in 2018.
Call for Case Studies
We are seeking input from members to source compelling case studies of SDG-related initiatives that showcase member action around the specific SDGs under review this year.
The SDGs under review this year are:
• Goal 4. Quality education
• Goal 8. Decent work and economic growth
• Goal 10. Reduced inequalities
• Goal 13. Climate action
• Goal 16. Peace, justice and strong institutions
• Goal 17. Partnerships for the goals
Case studies should ideally be between 100 – 250 words in length and provide specific examples of initiatives being undertaken by ICC member companies.
We would also welcome any related policy recommendations from you – e.g. on challenges to implementation or barriers faced.
At this occasion we recommend you also that you register the corresponding example at http://www.businessfor2030.org/join-us.
