You have the opportunity to be inspired by the amazing Speaker line-up, participate in online Call to Action workshops with inspiring inclusive business leaders and participate in one-to-one Matchmaking meetings with actors from business, civil society, academia and government from around the globe!
Unsustainable business practices, the climate crisis and the global pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the deep systemic fragilities in global value chains. These frailties have impacted not only supply chains, but also the millions of people who rely on these value chains for their livelihoods. Companies that do not adequately address the social and environmental impacts of their activities are likely to remain at risk to future shocks and challenges.
Re-building resilient and future-proof value chains is key for securing long-term business success and making real progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. The Inclusive Business Forum will challenge participants to collaborate on transforming value chains towards a more sustainable and equitable future.
