The 7th United Nations Private Sector Forum was designed to increase understanding of efforts underway by the private sector and civil society to address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to provide a platform for these groups to announce actions that advance the SDGs. Convened in the context of the UN Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and hosted by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, the Forum was held on 26 September at United Nations Headquarters in New York. The Forum brought together nearly 350 leaders from business, Government, the UN and civil society. Organized into two distinct yet complementary segments, the Forum showcased how businesses are accelerating progress towards the SDGs through their core business operations and encouraged participants to explore how multi-stakeholder partnerships will play a critical role in achieving the entire sustainable development agenda.
