11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Conference Room 12, UNHQ

Side Event

With this event Swedish Industry and Public Private Partnership initiatives are presented where the aim is to emphasize the industry’s will and ability to act as a motor in the needed change process to transform into a sustainable world where the seventeen global goals are met and where SDG 14 – saving the oceans – is key in the planetary processes. By showing the diversity in knowledge, and driving forces, we like to demonstrate that the transformation is possible through robust incentives.

The event is arranged by The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise, The Swedish Steel Producers’ Association and Zero Vision Tool, in cooperation with World Ocean Council, UN Global Compact, ICC, and more. It will be held in conference room 12 in the UN Headquarters on June 6, starting 11:00 AM (ESD).
