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. 

We’re ISO, the International Organization for Standardization. We have developed and published more than 22 000 International Standards that support the three pillars of sustainable development.  From climate change to trade, our standards respond to global needs and help benchmark our progress against the SDGs. With its expertise and resources, ISO is well positioned to support the international community in achieving the SDGs, all of which are related to ISO’s work. Join this informative session to find out how and why ISO standards can contribute to the 2030 Global Agenda.
