One year after the approval of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 – how ICC and companies contribute
Monday 3 October 2016, 14:00 in Berne
In September 2015, the member states of the United Nations approved a new global development agenda (Agenda 2030) with a set of Development Goals designed to resolve two of the most critical issues confronting the world community: to eradicate poverty and to promote sustainable development. Companies have a decisive role to these Development Goals in the context of their own activities, independent of government programs.
