Private sector engagement will be imperative to bridge the gap and promote sustainability objectives necessary to attain the Sustainable Development Goals. Global thought leaders will deliberate on ways and means to initiate this engagement from two perspectives, namely the role of corporate social responsibility and corporate governance, and public-private partnerships.
Elements for the debate:
- How can the public sector lend broader support to the private sector's development of innovative financing solutions, in pursuit of an SDG supportive financial system?
- From voluntary action to mandatory standards? Assessing the evolution of corporate governance.
- Public and private sector engagement on sustainability concerns: how to create the rightbalance?
