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.

One year after the approval of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 – how ICC and companies contribute

 

Monday 3 October 2016, 14:00 in Berne

 

In September 2015, the member states of the United Nations approved a new global development agenda (Agenda 2030) with a set of Development Goals designed to resolve two of the most critical issues confronting the world community: to eradicate poverty and to promote sustainable development. Companies have a decisive role to these Development Goals in the context of their own activities, independent of government programs.

 

ICC Switzerland will organize a seminar on 3 October 2016 in Berne. With this seminar, companies will show concretely how they contribute with their strategy in the SDGs. The state of the UN process will be presented by Louise Kantrow, ICC Permanent Representative to the United Nations. The Swiss process will be presented by Till Berger. Andrea Bacher, Senior Policy Manager and Executive in charge of energy, environment, and green economy at ICC will present the contribution of the ICC Charter for Sustainable Development and concrete examples. The case studies will show what the companies do concretely.
