Event description

Description

Nowadays business organizations are increasingly called on to contribute to achieving the SDGs by identifying and executing sustainable development strategies. These strategies are viewed as key drivers fundamental to their vision and business models. This workshop examines early experiences from the private sector, and offers an opportunity to discuss the ways in which business organisations can rethink their management processes, accounting tools, and reporting frameworks to meet their objectives for both competitiveness and growth, as well as contributing to the achievement of the SDGs, and long-term value creation more broadly.
