About the Business Forum

The 4th SDG Business Forum will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 25 September 2019. The Business Forum provides a unique multi-stakeholder platform to support business action and partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – fostering public-private dialogues, catalysing new partnerships and alliances, and exploring innovative business solutions to accelerate sustainable development.

The Business Forum will be held during the UN’s 2019 SDG Summit which will be held under the theme of: ‘The SDGs… Turning Promises into Reality’.

More information on the Business Forum including the Agenda can be found here.
