At the second session of the UN Environment Assembly (23-27 May 2016) in UN Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, the private sector was engaged as never before in the Sustainable Innovation Expo 2016, which was facilitated by UN Environment’s Secretariat of Governing Bodies and Stakeholders and took place in parallel with the Assembly.

By engaging the private sector in the Expo, UN Environment has encouraged the business community to take greater responsibility for its environmental footprint and that of their partners.

The Expo brought together policymakers, civil society and the business community in nine thematic panel discussions over three days. Panelists focused on some of the most critical and prevalent issues in today’s world, such as: sustainable energy; healthy oceans; air quality; rapid urbanization; big data and innovation; natural capital; and waste management.
