About the Sustainability Summit NYC

To achieve the 2030 agenda, it is essential that governments and the private sector collaborate. The private sector is crucial in executing the policies decided by governments around the world in order to reach the common goals for climate and a sustainable future

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is a powerful stage, where policymakers, organizations, and the private sector can come together in front of a global audience. The UN will have a comprehensive review of the SDGs during UNGA in 2023, and there is a strong need to accelerate the action.

During the 78th United Nations General Assembly, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and partners established a platform for the promotion of sustainable solutions and the adaptation of the SDGs. By bringing together stakeholders from around the world, the Ministry and its partners can facilitate the exchange of best practices and promote sustainable development. 


The target audience was global decision-makers from governments, NGOs, civil society, and the private sector.

Ultimately, achieving the green transition requires a collective effort from all countries and industries. Positioning both public and private actors on the global stage at UNGA and other international forums provides an opportunity to highlight sustainable solutions to the world’s pressing challenges.

The summit was a three-day event with 45-minute sessions of talks and debates, networking, and receptions. 


The Sustainability Summit NYC took place in the Chrysler Building East at 666 Third Ave, 21st fl, 10017, NY. 

The venue hosted both sessions, networking areas and the SDG Action Zone. 

It was decorated with Danish design furniture and the iconic ‘Copenhagen Bench’.
