This session will provide a platform for high-level representatives of international investors to share insights into their organizations’ global and regional sustainable development policies, strategies, and their localized impact in diverse settings. Our distinguished private sector representatives will discuss strategies for promoting sustainable development in critical sectors like food security, healthcare, and finance. Panel members will shed light on their global policies, their local implementations, best practices and collaborative efforts in diverse contexts. Additionally, representatives of the OECD Istanbul and YASED will explore the role of national and international organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in shaping sustainable investment.

Session themes:

  • How do global sustainability policies of international investors translate into actions at the local level in different countries with varying contexts and priorities?
  • How do global and regional sustainability strategies and approaches of international investors play out in different sectors, such as in food, healthcare, or sustainable finance?
