The SDG Business Forum within UN's High-Level Political Forum, HLPF took place on 19 June 2016 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. SDG Business Forum was co-hosted by the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, UN Global Compact, and International Chamber of Commerce, as Chair of the Global Business Alliance for 2030.  The SDG Business Forum convened leaders from business and governments, together with heads of UN agencies, key international organizations and civil society groups. 

WCCE delegation to the Forum comprised our President, Alfonso González. The objective of our attendance is to show the commitment of WCCE and its members organizations to UN's Sustainable Development Goals and contribute for its accomplishment.

The Forum provided an opportunity for business to report on key achievements and activities undertaken during this pivotal first year of SDG implementation and look at the role of business in catalyzing sustainable growth and development—from innovative approaches to financing through to the business case for sustainability and new partnerships.
