Business #2030 Conference: Leading the way to a sustainable future for Albanian companies

UNDP Albania

The United Nations in Albania and the Embassy of Sweden in Tirana are organizing the Business #2030 Conference, taking place on May 31st and June 1st at the Palace of Brigades in Tirana, Albania. 

This event is designed to introduce traditional and innovative sustainability practices to Albanian companies in a dynamic setting.

As Albanian companies face a multitude of challenges in the coming years, such as sustainability, digitalisation, higher safety and quality standards, and European Union integration, this conference will help them confront these issues head-on. 

Drawing local and international company representatives, business leaders, policy makers, and sustainability experts, this event is inspired by global business events like Dubai 2020 Expo.

During this conference, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in thought-provoking discussions led by a remarkable lineup of speakers. The conference will focus on a variety of topics, including the role of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles, and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in setting the foundation for a more resilient future for Albanian businesses.

Additionally, attendees will learn how to become a sustainable company, with Albanian, Swedish, and international speakers showcasing sustainable practices and innovations. Collaboration between Albanian and international companies, academia, and civil society will also be explored to boost innovation and sustainability in Albania's future business landscape.

Leading Swedish companies and organizations will also be participating in the conference, sharing their expertise and engaging with Albanian businesses, with the potential of creating future partnerships and collaborations. 
Furthermore, the first edition of the SDG Business Pioneer Award will be officially launched in Albania at this event, providing attendees with an exciting opportunity to witness this historic moment.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Business #2030 Conference, where you will have the chance to network with like-minded individuals and learn about sustainable practices that can help your business thrive in the years to come.

“Business Partnerships and Solutions for SDGs” is the United Nations Joint Project that provides the framework for the event. Its goal is to raise awareness among Albanian companies about the SDGs and to support businesses in becoming more sustainable by improving working conditions and processes. 

The project is funded by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and implemented by UNDP, FAO, ILO and UNIDO in Albania.
