Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development 2017

21 NOVEMBER – 23 NOVEMBER 2017, SINGAPORE

ACCELERATING SDG ACTION: MEASUREMENT, PERFROMANCE AND IMPACT

AGENDA

ACCELERATING SDG ACTION: MEASUREMENT, PERFORMANCE AND IMPACT

The introduction of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 provided a global masterplan for ensuring an equitable, sustainable future for all. Successful implementation of the SDGs will require a bold, integrated and collaborative approach to development, balancing inclusive, green and economic growth in a rapidly changing world.

The Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development 2017 will look in depth at each of the 17 SDGs, provide solutions for accelerating action, and tools for measuring performance and impact. Case studies on progress will be presented from businesses, governments, UN agencies, NGOs, investors and international experts. Building on the success of RBF 2016, innovation for inclusive finance and business will remain high on the agenda this year.

Delegates can choose from 17 SDG workshops with a longer, more interactive format for discussions. Two years since the goals were adopted, RBF 2017 will bring together more than 600 leaders to share commitments to action, report on progress and together define a framework for measuring performance and impact.
