On November 10, 2017, at the Embassy of Canada in Buenos Aires, the Argentine Business Council for Sustainable Development (CEADS) and RACI, held a breakfast presentation of both platforms before journalists.
Both platforms aim to make visible the work of the Private Sector and the Civil Society in pursuit of compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The CEADS SDG Platform, developed by CEADS and EY Argentina, aims to publicize innovative experiences at the local level of companies that contribute to the SDGs. This Platform was presented in March and today has 101 initiatives, in which 46 companies participated, contributing to the work carried out around the 2030 Agenda.
On the other hand, RACI, with the support of Cablevisión Fibertel, launched an SDG platform in the month of August that has 138 projects from different CSOs in our country. This initiative aims to democratize the information on the work carried out by Civil Society Organizations in Argentina and make it visible in the eyes of key actors that will enhance them.
During the day, where Robert Fry, Ambassador of Canada to Argentina, acted as host, both organizations shared the results of their respective platforms to date.
We thank all those present for generating the space for dialogue to analyze the results and raise the next challenges in which we must work to strengthen both initiatives and disseminate the implementation of the SDGs in Argentina. We also thank the Embassy of Canada in Buenos Aires for granting the space so that we can carry out the event.
