The role of the private sector in fostering 'justice, peace and sustainable institutions' (SDG16)

09.00 - 18.00

The rule of law sits at the heart of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 on ‘peace, justice and sustainable institutions’. It is a vital Goal for the private sector and governments alike. 

Although there is scope for the private sector to take a more direct role in achieving the SDGs, it also has other compliance and reporting obligations to meet, notably concerning human rights:

  • Why does the private sector need to take action on SDG16 (peace, justice and sustainable institutions)?
  • Are the SDGs, and SDG16 in particular, good for business? 
  • What is the private sector’s role in SDG16? What tools and instruments can help the private sector meet the Goal? How can the private sector engage with other stakeholders, including government, in meeting SDG16? 
  • Does commitment to SDG16 conflict with or complement other compliance and reporting requirements, including those on human rights? 
  • How and where should the private sector deploy its resources in an effective way to meet these various obligations? 

Please join us for a full day of panels and speakers discussing these questions.
