Inaugural Business for Peace Annual Event Meeting Report

The Inaugural Business for Peace Annual Event brought together over 150 participants from business, civil society, academia, the UN and other experts. Marking the first anniversary of the programme since its launch in September 2013 by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the event culminated with over 20 companies and business associations from Bangladesh, Indonesia, Iraq, Lebanon, Republic of Korea, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the United States joining B4P. The Global Compact Network Ukraine also joined the initiative.

Throughout the two-day meeting, the cross-sectoral and cross-thematic programme enabled participants to explore the challenges and opportunities of operating in complex environments. Special emphasis was placed on collaborative approaches to engage various types of organizations around thematic areas where business can make transformative contributions to peace.
