Every city has its own challenges and priorities, so cities need to involve their citizens and interested stakeholders in defining their own sustainable pathway. For this reason, the role of the private sector is critical – business has the expertise, the strategic interest and the financial capacity to provide tailored sustainable solutions. But cities and business need a neutral platform to engage with each other, at both global and local levels, in order to build trust and a common vision and exchange on suitable solutions.

WBCSD offers a place for these interactions to happen.
