INVITATION FOR THE INTEGRATED REPORTING U.S. COMMUNITY!
A Roundtable discussion on measuring the private sector's contribution to the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Monday, April 23 2018, from 1.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m., in room S-2726. This event is organized by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) in partnership with the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), and the Royal Netherlands Institute of Chartered Accountants (NBA).
In the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including its financing needs, UNCTAD has over the past years aligned its work on enterprise sustainability reporting with the SDGs. This work builds on UNCTAD's long-standing role in servicing the annual sessions of the Intergovernmental Working Group of Experts on International Standards of Accounting and Reporting (ISAR). It also builds on the work of the convening organizations on sustainable development.
The Roundtable will bring together United Nations permanent representatives, representatives from capitals, United Nations agencies, prominent leaders from the private sector and civil society, in order to interactively discuss the important role of corporate reporting in the SDGs' monitoring mechanism. The event will also provide an opportunity for networking among key stakeholders in the area of reporting, including formal elected members of ISAR and member States interested in applying for formal membership in the Group.
If you are interested in joining the Roundtable on April 23, please confirm your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org, with copy to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also contact Neil Stevenson at email@example.com if you wish to discuss this further.
