ICCo’s programmes and initiatives focus on two core principles ‘Securing Sustainable Livelihoods’ and ‘Justice and Dignity for All’. They are closely aligned with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The focus of this round table will be on SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) in connection with responsible business, particularly focussing on textile, stone and tea sectors. The roundtable will build awareness, understanding of SDG 8. The purpose of the roundtable is to facilitate dialogue among various stakeholders with the intent of sharing knowledge and best practices, identifying challenges and exploring solutions in realising SDG 8 in business.
