ALATUR MEMBERS WILL JOIN THE EVENT MAKING GLOBAL GOALS LOCAL BUSINESS TAKING PLACE IN BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, FROM 25 TO 26 APRIL, 2018
Organized by the United Nations Global Compact and Global Compact Network Argentina, Making Global Goals Local Business – Argentina will bring together local and global leaders from business, civil society, Government, Global Compact Local Networks and the United Nations to catalyze collective action and impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a precursor to global discussions on national SDG progress taking place later this year, the event will be an opportunity for business to play an active role as we begin taking stock of progress across Latin America. As a leading example of multi-stakeholder collaboration, Argentina stands as a strong model for others looking to partner at the country-level. Briefly, a programmatic focus on three main areas where the UN Global Compact plans to have significant impact throughout 2018: climate action, financing for sustainable development and securing human rights across all businesses.
