Financing development - Investing in the SDGs

Partnering with the private sector for sustainable development

Achieving the ambitious targets of the 2030 Agenda requires a revitalized and enhanced global partnership. Focusing on the role of business partnerships is key to advance the implementation of the SDGs, prevent crises and sustain peace. Whether creating jobs, investing in education, skills, and training, or tackling underlying causes of displacement like conflict, disaster or climate change, companies can have a huge impact in preventing instability and helping peaceful societies flourish. This is why the United Nations stand will focus on the role of business in advancing sustainable development to positively contribute to a more secure, just, equitable and sustainable future for this and future generations, and showcase success stories of UN partnerships with the private sector.
