In June 2012 on the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, world leaders come together to build consensus on a more sustainable course for our world. The Forum is held in cooperation with the Rio+20 Secretariat, the UN System and the Global Compact. The Corporate Sustainability Forum will consist of more than 60 focused sessions on themes related to the Rio+20 agenda. These themes have been identified based on their relevance to business and its capacity to provide substantive contributions to corresponding UN objectives. The Forum will explore each theme’s unique challenges and opportunities for business and aims to identify practical ways forward.
Forum sessions will have a common purpose and design: to spur action and stimulate greater uptake. Innovative public-private partnerships, business contributions and new commitments will be showcased for each theme. Events will be organized by a wide range of organizations, including the UN Global Compact; UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes; Global Compact Local Networks; and other selected partners.
