Business and partnerships play key roles in achieving the new global goals on sustainable development and climate change.
More than 100 sessions at the IUCN Congress featured promising examples of business engagement, showcasing the latest knowledge, policies and tools being used by the public and private sectors to transform business practices. These sessions also highlighted the benefits to business -- from valuing natural resources vital to their value chains and achieving greater efficiencies in their operations to reducing exposure to climate change risks and building new sustainable markets.
The World Business Council for Sustainable Development sponsored the Business and Biodiversity Pavilion. As the only international business organization within IUCN membership, WBCSD was a key participant at Congress. See the pavilion programme here and WBCSD's IUCN Congress web page for more about business participation at the Congress.
