Business engagement


  • We identify opportunities: We use data-driven evidence to identify market risks and opportunities aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that engage the private sector to understand and support policy goals.
  • We advance win-win models: We identify innovative companies and investment models, and broker partnerships between governments and companies to collaborate on opportunities for sustainable growth.
  • We catalyse collaboration: We plan, design and facilitate unique cross-sector dialogues that bridge the interests of politics, industry, investment and development and focus on collaborative outcomes.

“ESG is helping us to activate the corporate sector towards a fact-based dialogue on development priorities. It proposes to embed new collaborations in a much-needed process of business diplomacy to go beyond corporate philanthropy and corporate social responsibility."
