Business and Sustainable Development Commission

The Business and Sustainable Development Commission (BSDC) is a two-year initiative launched in 2016, focused on inspiring and mobilizing business leaders to align their companies with the Global Goals. With the engagement of 37 Commissioners from business, finance, civil society, labour, and international organisations, it is now bringing together diverse stakeholders to advance blended financing and map sector progress toward the SDGs and making the regional business case for Global Goals opportunities. It calls on business leaders to share what they are doing in their own companies and to learn about further action they can take by joining the commission at businesscommission.org/join.

The Business and Sustainable Development Commission partnered with RELX Group for the launch of the RELX Group SDG Resource Centre on 21 June 2017.
