Trade for Sustainble Development Forum 2017

Geneva, Switzerland


Partnerships: Which model is yours?

The Trade for Sustainable Development Forum brings together business people, researchers, standards organizations and international trade officials to discuss trends in sustainable value chains and voluntary sustainability standards.

Organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), this year’s event explores the theme of partnerships:
◦Why are some models more successful in achieving sustainability objectives?
◦What are common elements of success when standards organizations, policy makers and private companies work well together?
◦What can we expect from successful collaboration?
◦What issues should we consider when engaging in new partnerships?

The 2017 edition of the T4SD Forum will be hosted in the headquarters of ITC from
25-26 September and will feature a high-level session at the WTO Public Forum 2017 on 27 September

Join us and our distinguished speakers for this year’s T4SD Forum to learn about various models of collaboration for sustainability goals. Please register for this event here
