European chambers delivering on the UN SDGs
Hosted session by EUROCHAMBRES at the ICC ‘Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum’ in the framework of the COP26.
The COP26 meeting this year will be pivotal. The world is getting ready to finalize and implement the Paris Agreement. This will result in much stronger collaboration with and inclusion of the private sector. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can serve as a basic universal framework for businesses to align their operations. Bringing the SDGs and their significance closer to businesses, as well as demonstrating methods of supporting their implementation, is therefore crucial. This webinar will thus focus on how to support businesses on their way to decarbonisation using the framework of the UN SDGs. It aims to make them better understandable and applicable for businesses by demonstrating the benefits they provide. The session will give an overview of both the international and European perspectives on the SDGs, as well as the business point of view. During the session, we will highlight European chamber’s support mechanisms in the various fields of the UN SDGs, which have a high potential to support companies achieving on the goals.
