Trade For Sustainable Development Forum
From Monday 01 October 2018 -  08:00am
To Wednesday 03 October 2018 - 05:00pm

The fifth edition of the Trade for Sustainable Development Forum will discuss SDG 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production” and its relationship with sustainable trade in global value chains. SDG 12 aims at “doing more and better with less”, by promoting a more resource efficient economy and encouraging industries, companies and consumers to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption.

For global value chains, shifting towards greener production practices demands collaboration among all actors from producers to final consumers.

Organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), this year’s event will:

  • Provide a unique platform to discuss sustainable trade practices – and identify innovative best practices - vis-à-vis the implementation of SDG 12.
  • Identify challenges and opportunities for SMEs arising from a shift to a greener economy for the implementation of SDG 12.
  • Leverage ITC’s contribution to the Global Goals through support to SME international competitiveness for inclusive and sustainable growth through value addition, trade, investment and global partnerships.

The 2018 edition of the T4SD Forum will be hosted in the headquarters of ITC,Geneva Switzerland from 1-3 October.
