U.N. Conference on Environment and Development “Rio+20” Twenty years after the first Rio summit, world leaders will meet again to renew their commitment to sustainable development and effective engagement of the private sector. Rio+20 will be critical for climate change and the challenges related to environmental protection.
The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Rio+20), to be held in Rio on June 20-22 2012, promises to be a unique opportunity to strengthen public-private collaboration needed to advance sustainability on a massive scale.
The Business Action for Sustainable Development 2012 (BASD) , is a joined effort of the UNGC, ICC and WBCSD aiming at coordinating the participation of the private sector at Rio+20.
