UNDP and Global Initiatives to co-organise Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development 2017

September 7, 2017 Conferences No Comments Email Email

We are delighted to announce that the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Global Initiatives will co-organise the 6th annual Responsible Business Forum (RBF) on Sustainable Development, Singapore, 21-23 November 2017.

Under the theme ‘Accelerating SDG Action: Measurement, Performance and Impact’, RBF Singapore will focus on collaborative action between companies, government and organizations that can be measured, scaled and replicated. Senior government officials from around the Asia Pacific region will provide perspectives from their countries on national progress and regional coordination across each of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Case studies on SDG action and performance will be presented by more than 100 companies and NGOs working to end poverty, protect and restore our planet and ensure equality and prosperity for all.

Stefan Priesner, UN Resident Coordinator for Malaysia and UNDP Resident Representative for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei Darussalam says, “For the Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved, the involvement of the private sector is absolutely crucial – as a driver for innovation, as an engine of development, as an employer, and as a key contributor to economic, social, environmental and sustainable development. In this context, the Responsible Business Forum is timely and critical. Following last year’s successful partnership, UNDP is pleased to co-organise another RBF together with Global Initiatives”.

This year’s RBF is expected to bring together more than 700 leaders from business, government, UN agencies and NGOs, all working towards the goal of realising the SDGs. UNDP is uniquely placed to facilitate an integrated process to accelerate and support the implementation of the goals.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Responsible Business Forum Singapore 2017 this November.
