27 February, 2024



Discover the transformative initiatives showcased in the inaugural BIMG Beacon Projects Report 2024, a testament to the power of collaborative efforts in addressing global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution and tackling inequality. These projects, executed by Business and Industry Major Group (BIMG) members and SMEs, exemplify innovative business-led partnerships and collaborations on both global and local scales. 

Aligned with the theme of UNEA-6, the report emphasizes solutions at a systems level, offering insights into how businesses, alongside civil society, government, and international organizations, can drive positive, inclusive outcomes for society. 

This report illustrates the value-creation possible in developing or emerging economies and the transformative impacts that are possible in local communities. It also shows how developed economies are working with emerging ones, to overcome shared challenges. Many of these examples offer scope for further growth and have the potential to be replicated, extended and scaled. 

Explore the 35 leading Beacon Projects featured in the report, highlighting the significant impact of multilateral coordination and forward-thinking strategies. From sector-specific initiatives to local and global endeavors, these projects demonstrate the potential for creating value and opportunities across diverse economies. 

Through these examples, we aim to inspire organizations and stakeholders to embark on ambitious initiatives leveraging the latest technology and innovative thinking. Join us in accelerating the sustainability transformation and shaping a brighter future for all.
