Overview

Strategic commitments to humanitarian action by large companies are becoming increasingly common. Some companies have formed practical humanitarian partnerships with UN agencies and NGOs that aim to leverage their expertise in areas affected by war, disasters and conflict.

Yet, the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals remains threatened by conflict. How can the private sector best contribute to prosperity, peacebuilding and security by how and where it does business? Which industries are well positioned to contribute and what role can tools such as finance and technology play? Which regions, countries and markets are most salient?And how can companies convince their internal stakeholders to prioritize contributing to peace and security around the world?

This event is open to corporate members only. It will be held under the Chatham House Rule and followed by a reception.

This event is organized in association with SustainAbility.
