The private sector as a source of contemporary innovations and solutions enabling technological progress has also a special role to play in the recovery of the global economy after the pandemic. Transparent and ethical business is not only the driving force behind the necessary changes, but also many investment processes depend on its decisions.
Green finance and investment activities based on the Sustainable Development Goals are key to supporting genuinely green and socially and environmentally responsible changes. The transformation of urban centers, placing the inhabitants and the environment in the center, cannot be achieved without the support and participation of the private sector. It is connected with a huge responsibility, which is at the same time an opportunity and a new direction of development.
That's why Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy and United Nations Global Compact Network Poalnd established the Business Council, which includes over 40 CEOs who meet three times before the World Urban Forum and discuss how business can help cities in their green transformation. We would like to share our conclusions during the networking event at WUF11.
The main objective of the event is in-depth discussion between representatives of business and cities.
As a result of the work of the Business Council, several recommendations for cities were created. The recommendations, that will help cities in their green transformations, will be presented during the meeting
