The Global Dialogue provides a platform for multi-sector engagement, discussing ways the public and private sectors can work together to advocate and deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals, launched by the UN in 2015.
“As one of the world’s largest hygiene and health companies, we consider the Sustainable Development Goals as more than the right thing to do, but also as business opportunities. Today’s UN Foundation Global Dialogue provides a valuable forum to bring together leaders in the field to share experiences and identify how we can collaborate to achieve the Goals,” said Essity CEO Magnus Groth.
