Enabling Green and Inclusive Markets: A Case for Public Private Collaboration
9:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
In cooperation with the Rio+20 Secretariat, the UN System and the Global Compact Local Network Brazil, the UN Global Compact will host the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum: Innovation & Collaboration for the Future We Want from 15-18 June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro.
This side event will give policy makers and the private sector a unique opportunity to discuss "state of the art" approaches to facilitate the success of green and inclusive businesses through an improved business enabling environment. Participants will have the opportunity not only to get inspiration from thought-leading practitioners, researchers and policymakers but also to get a glimpse on first-hand-experience from promising approaches on public-private collaboration in this regard.
The UN Global Impact Forum aims to strengthen the business contribution to sustainable development globally – seeking to bring greater scale to responsible business practices, to advance and diffuse sustainable innovation, and to stimulate broader collaboration between companies, governments, civil society and the UN.
