Introduction to international SDG and UN events

Begivenheder

Every year several events take place on the international scene focusing on sustainability issues and solutions. More than ever the private sector and businesses play a role at these events with ambitious sustainability commitments and concrete solutions to the global challenges. However, it is not always clear how you as a business can take part in these events or how you can engage proactively with the United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals. If you want to know how your company can engage in the international playing field during 2020, please join our information meeting and get an introductory overview of selected events and activities. This event is for companies who are still trying to get an overview of these events and how to participate in the best way.
