Event description

Description

Now in its sixth year, the annual Trade for Sustainable Development Forum is one of the leading global events focused on major trends in sustainable value chains and voluntary sustainability standards. Organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), the T4SD Forum will again take place in conjunction with the WTO Public Forum, from 7-9 October.

This year, the T4SD Forum will reflect the new realities of international trade and focus on sustainability mainstreaming – the process of embedding sustainability into the DNA of every organization and every business. The three-day event will look at sustainability mainstreaming from every angle: from its policy implications to its implementation on the ground, from its environmental dimension to its social dimension, from SMEs to large corporations.

This event will provide a unique platform for a diverse range of actors – from high-level officials to MSME owners and young entrepreneurs – to exchange views, share good practices and catalyze solutions that will help deliver a shared vision for a more inclusive and sustainable future.

Click to register - and join us and our distinguished speakers for this year’s T4SD Forum to hear how these initiatives are supporting this shift to a greener, more humane and inclusive economy.
