Unleashing the power of the private sector for the 2030 Agenda


With its unparalleled reach, the private sector has the capacity to be a key driver in achieving the objectives of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and in some cases is already performing this role. The United Nations and its Member States must seize the opportunity to form strategic partnerships with private sector entities and advocate for businesses to embrace sustainable development. The 2030 Agenda offers the private sector numerous opportunities to access new markets and institutional investment.


Target audience:

  • United Nations staff, especially partnership specialists and officers;
  • Development practitioners from governments, civil society, academia and the private sector.
