"The Sustainable Development Goals: Experiences and Progresses on their implementation in Europe"

Date:

10/25/2017


The members of the European network of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) are meeting in Rome from 25 to 27 October to debate the impact of the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the United Nations in September 2015, on the world of business.  

The UNGC, the largest corporate sustainability initiative established at global level upon the initiative of the United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, has gradually developed local networks in more than 30 European Countries since 2000, and in Italy starting from 2002.

The Conference, entitled "The Sustainable Development Goals: Experiences and Progresses on their implementation in Europe", will open at the Farnesina on 25 October, at the attendance of the Undersecretary of State, Sen. Benedetto Della Vedova, and of the UNGC Executive Director, Denmark’s Lise Kingo. The meeting will offer the opportunity to explore different experiences and reflect on how to orient European networks towards business models that might concomitantly comply with the 17 SDGs and optimise the opportunities that they offer to key economic players such as corporations. The debate will include contributions by representatives of companies (Hera, ENEL, Salini Impregilo, etc.), of Civil Society Organisations (Enrico Giovannini from ASVIS and Stefan Crets from CSR Europe) and of European institutions (European Commission and PRIMA).

The globally topical theme is all the more significant for Europe, with its advanced sustainability governance system, whose relevance goes beyond the traditional environmental and development aid dimension, to embrace the essence of corporate social responsibility.    The choice of the Farnesina as the venue for the conference reflects the attention focused on public-private partnerships, now more than ever essential in order to implement the 17 SDGs and specifically the goal to reinforce the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.
