In the race to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the looming deadline of the 'Decade of Action’, the private sector has emerged as a critical force for change. With their vast resources and expertise, businesses, foundations and philanthropists have a vital role to play in tackling pressing global challenges such as climate change, poverty and inequality, ultimately creating a safer and more sustainable world for children.

UNICEF is at the forefront of this transformative journey, working hand in hand with the private sector to develop innovative solutions that deliver scaled and sustainable impact in alignment with the SDGs. By integrating the SDGs into their plans, the private sector maximizes impact, addresses key challenges, accesses new markets and demonstrates unwavering commitment to stakeholders.

The power of partnerships lies at the core of this pioneering report, aligning with the 17th SDG on international cooperation. The report highlights how partnerships with UNICEF shape the future and achieve remarkable progress, from eradicating polio to reducing child mortality and connecting schools to the internet.

Together, through strategic alliances and a steadfast commitment to the SDGs, we can turn the tide on global challenges and create a better future for generations to come.
