In recent years, a growing number of companies around the world have voluntarily adopted and implemented a broad range of sustainability practices. The Forum will address what government leaders and business executives can jointly do to achieve inclusive growth. Government and business leaders are called upon to implement the social, economic, and environmental dimension of running government and business, incorporating a holistic and balanced approach that incorporates ending poverty, reducing inequalities and combating climate change in order to achieve the local and international agenda of sustainable development.
With this topical Advocacy Forum, EITSC and Nordcham endeavor to spearhead discussion and dialogues amongst private sector, government, civil society, and other stakeholders to deliver what has been promised to United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and is now imposed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
A. The Forum will debate actions in 3 economic sectors of the Philippines: • Agriculture: Development of supply chains • Maritime: The potential of the Blue Economy • Tourism: Enhancing the country’s next growth engine
B. The Forum will look at 6 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN: • No poverty • Zero hunger • Good health and wellbeing for people • Quality education • Decent work and economic growth • Reducing inequalities
C. The Forum will also discuss the new Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) sustainability reporting guidelines for publicly-listed companies (PLCs). It has to be understood what is today limited to PLCs will eventually become the requirements for all companies – for understandable reasons, taking the above SDGs seriously.
EITSC X NordCham Advisory Forum: Achieving Win-Win Approaches in Sustainable Development will be on June 20 (Thursday), 9AM to 5pm at Dusit Thani Manila. Get your tickets now!
