Hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations Private Sector Forum 2015 will focus on the role of the private sector in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Convened in the context of the UN summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, the interactive Forum is designed to increase understanding of efforts underway by the private sector and civil society, and provide a platform for the private sector to announce long-term goals and partnerships that will make an important contribution towards achieving sustainable development for all.
The UN Global Compact will lead the organization of the Forum, in close collaboration with the Office of the Post-2015 Development Planning. Organizing Committee Partners will include a group of UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes and the UN Foundation.
Participation in the UN Private Sector Forum is by invitation only. Due to limited capacity, select chief executives and leaders from civil society organizations, including labour organizations and business associations that are UN Global Compact signatories or actively working with the United Nations, will have priority in attending the event. Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis, with concerted efforts made to ensure geographic and sectoral representation.
