About the UN Science-Policy-Business Forum on the Environment


Launched at the UN Environment Assembly in December 2017, the UN Science-
Policy-Business Forum on the Environment (UN-SPBF) is the United Nations’
fastest-growing inter-agency, multi-sector convening platform on the environment.
The Forum builds on the power of partnership to scale up solutions and grow green
technology markets, ones that are driven by advances in science and technology,
empowering policies, and innovative financing. The Forum organizes issues-based
consultations, roundtables, thematic conferences, and in-depth negotiations between
top scientists, policy makers, citizen science groups, and the business sector. Since
its launch, the Forum has grown into a dynamic interface of over 3,500 contributors
and partner institutions — representing the worlds of business, science and policy
— who are committed to this vision. It provides a unique platform for multiple
sectors to work together to help shape a sustainable and equitable future for all.
