The private sector will be a vital partner to public efforts to direct more investment effectively towards sustainable development. This session, organized in the format of investment stakeholders networking breakfasts or luncheons, will be the opportunity for private sector entities – global TNCs, SMEs and Foundations – to present their existing programmes and initiatives in support of sustainable development to the international community.

The world is changing fast and what the future will look like is up to all of us. By 2030, we expect:

  • 8.5 billion people on the planet, with an enormous rise in middle class consumption habits
  • An increase in environmental pressures, as well as demands for water and food
  • Increased social pressures, including the challenges of global poverty and meeting the world’s healthcare needs

Many customers and vendors already recognize there is both risk and opportunity in this future. They are looking for partners who understand their priorities and have an eye on the needs of the future. Who they do business with is in many cases as important as what they are buying. Dell is committed to driving human progress by putting technology and expertise to work where it can do the most good for people and the planet. Find out how we are meeting the challenges of 2030 and building a Legacy of Good.
