The private sector is critical to creating innovative and technological solutions, as well as providing resources to meet our global environmental challenges

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system, and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

Our mission is to provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment by inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.

The actions of governments and civil society alone are not enough for tackling our most pressing environmental challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Business is an important partner to find the solutions to our global challenges and bring positive and sustainable action.
