Business for a Sustainable Future: Addressing poverty, creating jobs, and ensuring a just transition

During the 2024 Partnership Forum of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), which will convene under the theme of “Reinforcing the 2030 Agenda and eradicating poverty in times of multiple crises: the effective delivery of sustainable, resilient and innovative solutions,” the Business and Industry Major Group (B&I MG), in partnership with the International Organisation of Employers (IOE), the International Labour Organization (ILO), and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will organise a side event on Business for a Sustainable Future: Addressing Poverty, Creating Jobs, and Ensuring a Just Transition.

The event aims to showcase how businesses can actively contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a focus on poverty reduction and job creation, and foster a just transition, ensuring equality and justice for all. Discussions will focus on bottlenecks in creating sustainable jobs and exploring solutions for inclusive practices, particularly targeting vulnerable populations. Examples from the Global South and female-run business initiatives will be explored.
