Showcase Member Action at the United Nations

ICC Headquarters is reaching out to seek your support for an exciting ICC initiative ahead of this year’s United Nations’ High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) – the UN’s central platform to review implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This year’s HLPF will be held at UN Headquarters in New York from 9 – 18 July 2019.

The HLPF presents an important opportunity for business to showcase its contribution to the implementation of the SDGs and to influence the development of policy frameworks around the 2030 Agenda. To this end, ICC will produce an ICC report detailing business actions, initiatives and recommendations, following on from the success of the ICC Business Action for Sustainable and Resilient Societies report presented at HLPF in 2018.

Call for Case Studies
We are seeking input from members to source compelling case studies of SDG-related initiatives that showcase member action around the specific SDGs under review this year.

AHV-Steuervorlage stärkt Wirtschaftsstandort Schweiz

ICC Switzerland empfiehlt JA-Parole

Für ICC Switzerland ist die AHV-Steuervorlage notwendig, um den international ausgerichteten Unternehmen in der Schweiz Rechts- und Investitionssicherheit zu geben. Die aktuellen Steuerprivilegien sind international nicht mehr haltbar und müssen abgeschafft werden. Die AHV-Steuervorlage macht dies im Rahmen der föderalen Steuerpolitik und stärkt somit den Wirtschaftsstandort Schweiz. ICC Switzerland empfiehlt für die Abstimmung vom 19. Mai 2019 ein klares JA.
