Calling all members to be part of a report correlating to the UN's SDGs
As a direct outcome of the recently formed Alliance between AIPC, UFI and ICCA, ICCA members now have an important opportunity to demonstrate our collective leadership in addressing the United Nations Sustainable development goals established to document and illustrate how industry initiatives can be undertaken in ways that support long term stability and responsible growth on a world-wide basis.
The Meetings Industry has a great story to tell in this regard and telling it effectively is a good way to support our advocacy initiatives by demonstrating something we all take for granted—that our work supports economic, professional, social and academic advancement to the benefit of all—but is not well understood by those outside the industry.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a call to action by all countries to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. The 17 goals address the global challenges that we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, economic prosperity, and justice. The aim is to achieve all 17 goals and their accompanied targets by 2030, and businesses play a crucial role in ensuring this success.
We hereby invite you to document your achievements– and provide us with the ability to illustrate the principles on which this industry operates. At the same time, we offer you the opportunity to distinguish your organization amongst your colleagues in ways that really matter.
