ICC has launched a COVID-19 web portal, providing trusted and up-to-date information for businesses, policymakers and chambers of commerce worldwide.

The new site has been developed in line with ICC commitments to the World Health Organization (WHO) to facilitate information flows by disseminating the latest and most reliable information on the COVID-19 outbreak to businesses.

A joint ICC/WHO statement issued last month announced plans to leverage ICC’s global network of over 45 million businesses to enable businesses worldwide to play a full and active role in preventing the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

As a trusted private sector partner, ICC is working closely with business, government and other stakeholders to ensure that the latest, most reliable information and tailored guidance reaches the global business community to help protect lives and livelihoods.

The new knowledge-sharing website contains vetted advice for businesses, policymakers and chambers on how to overcome the unfolding global health and societal emergency presented by COVID-19. It serves as a one-stop-shop for users featuring practical policy recommendations, resources for businesses to understand, prepare for and respond to the unprecedented disruption, and actions undertaken by chambers of commerce in response to COVID-19.

«The private sector actively implements the UN SDGs 2030 but we have to scale up. If we continue like up today, we will not achieve the Goals». This was the key message given by John Denton, the new Secretary General of the International Chamber of Commerce at the SDG Business Forum organised in the context of the HLPF at the UN in New York on 17th July 2018.

 

ICC Switzerland participated in the official Swiss Delegation to the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) 2018. The HLPF annually analyses the status of implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 adopted three years ago. The technical and political discussions were complemented by numerous side events. This facilitated the interaction between business, NGOs and government representatives.

The SDGs shall not be perceived as a new burden but as an opportunity for business. Swiss companies substantially contribute to the implementation of the SDGs as a new  pdfICC report shows. Further, a special movie (see below) shows examples of how Caran d’Ache, Firmenich, J. Safra Sarasin Bank and Nestlé implement the SDGs in their daily activities. This movie was first launched at a special dinner organised by USCIB (ICC USA) and supported by ICC Switzerland. The movie was very well received. It was produced by the Global Compact Network Switzerland which is hosted by ICC Switzerland.
