Aligning multinational firms for the “decade of action”: a real prospect or wishful thinking? (organized by AIB)

Achieving the SDGs requires the deep engagement of multinational firms. However, the business sector still lacks clarity and consistency on what SDG alignment looks like for the business sector itself. This panel will discuss what role multinational enterprises (MNEs) can play in pursuing the SDGs and how MNE–government collaboration can further enhance this.
