Towards Stockholm+50 at UNEA 5.2
The virtual side-event “Towards Stockholm 50: Transforming global value chains for a healthy planet and prosperity for all” at UNEA 5.2 focuses on sustainable global value chain initiatives as a key input towards the UN high level meeting Stockholm +50 in June 2022.
Our current pattern of unsustainable consumption and production is driving planetary, health, and equity crises. Stockholm+50 will accelerate implementation in areas fundamental to a sustainable future.
The side-event “Towards Stockholm 50: Transforming global value chains for a healthy planet and prosperity for all” is co-convened by the World Economic Forum, the Swedish Ministry of the Environment and the 10 Year Framework programme (UNEP). This side-event will outline the complexity of sustainable production and consumption, showcase examples of value chain levers for sustainability, and discuss actions to scale these up. Emphasis will also be placed on the role of local entrepreneurs and innovators in upgrading value chain sustainability.
Around 70% of trade today involves global value chains that stitch together services, raw materials, inputs, and suppliers across borders. The clock is ticking to ensure these production networks contribute to a healthy and prosperous planet.
Date and time: Wednesday 2 March 13.15-14.45 EAT (11.15-12.45 CET)
