Business for Peace Annual Event

The Inaugural Business for Peace Annual Event saw over 150 representatives from business, civil society, the UN, think tanks and Global Compact Local Networks come together to explore opportunities to enhance the positive contributions that companies can make in challenging operating environments around the world.  

The event highlighted different perspectives on the business case for peace and how companies could enhance the efforts that they are already undertaking to support peace and development. Through candid discussions on a range of topics, participants became part of a growing community of practice exploring collaborative approaches to peace.
