RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS AND HUMAN RIGHTS FORUM IN THAILAND

RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS AND HUMAN RIGHTS FORUM IN THAILAND

SwitchAsia Regional Policy Advocacy Component organised the Side Event “Businesses Accelerating Inclusive Green Economies – Leaving No One Behind”, on 11 June 2019 at the Responsible Business and Human Rights Forum in Thailand. The aim of our event was to learn and share about the existing tools regulators, financial institutions and business use to operationalise responsible business practices that lead to more sustainable production and consumption.

The discussions were organized around two main issues:

1) the enabling conditions where businesses are not only providing jobs and income, but enhancing human well-being, prosperity and social equity, within the contours of positive environmental impact;

2) the enabling environments and incentives that are attracting investors to invest in businesses that accelerate inclusive green economies.

Panellists shared best practices in policies, business and investment for the creation of inclusive green economy pathways and concluded that those practices should be scaled up under a systematic approach to achieve SDG 12 for Sustainable Consumption and Production whilst “leaving no one behind”.
