The Business Council for the UN is a specialized membership organization housed in the UN Foundation that delivers tailored opportunities for companies to engage with the UN and its priorities throughout the year. Our work advances the shared interests of business and the UN, with a large focus on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development Goals). Given the evolving role of companies in society and in the global development space, coupled with growing UN leadership on sustainable development, this role offers opportunities to support important progress envisioned by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as well as other UN-led efforts on human rights, equality, and peace-building.
