From large to small and medium-sized enterprises, from goods producers to service providers, from cities to farmlands, if we want to create a sustainable environment for future generations, we must act NOW.
Why partner with us? The UN Environment Programme is the voice of the environment on the multilateral stage. With 193 member States, UNEP convenes all governments and major groups and stakeholders, including businesses, to find solutions to our planet’s greatest environmental challenges. The private sector is a driver to the most cited environmental realities, such as climate change, land degradation, loss of biodiversity and generation of plastic waste but is also part of the solution.
The results of our engagement with the private sector will:
- Generate smart policies to protect the environment while providing business with the science and data tailored to support them to take transformational action for sustainability.
- Promote collaboration and joint ventures that are driven by the urgency to transform entire industries and sectors, helping private sector entities redesign their operations and business models.
- Share knowledge and best practices, accelerate and scale-up innovation and support advocacy for behavioral change among producers and consumers.
- Through collaboration with the financial sector to co-finance, re-direct financial flows and catalyze investments into solutions for climate, environment and underserved markets.
