With a view to disseminating and raising awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), since 2016 the UN Global Compact Network Italy has organised an annual Forum for companies from various production sectors, civil society organisations, institutions and academic bodies and is aimed, primarily, at encouraging a high-profile multi-stakeholder discussion.
The Italian Business & SDGs Annual Forum is characterised as a laboratory in which, through the sharing of knowledge, experiences and project lines, we arrive at the production of innovative ideas focused on common objectives. During the Forum, bridges are built between the different experiences recorded at national level and new forms of collaboration and shared planning for sustainable development are launched.
