Trade for Sustainable Development Forum 2016

  • t4sd 2016

    28-30 September 2016, Geneva, Switzerland

    Now in its third year, the annual Trade for Sustainable Development Forum is one of the leading global events focused on how voluntary sustainability standards can support sustainable value chains. Organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), the T4SD Forum will again take place in conjunction with the WTO Public Forum, from 28-30 September.

    Connecting communities in policy and business, trade and sustainability, the T4SD Forum will challenge thought leaders to bridge the gap between debates on sustainability standards, supply chains, and international trade to work towards achieving the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs).

    This year, the focus is on the importance of data-driven decision making in sustainable value chains. Expect candid exchange of views, the latest industry and policy insights and experience.

    Join us and our distinguished speakers for this year’s T4SD Forum to learn why sustainability information and data matter and how to make smarter decisions as a business leader, a policymaker, or a consumer.
