In the past months ABACO actively participated in the Private Sector Guiding Group (PSGG ), a group of global and regional business organization platforms which will help represent the private sector in the UN FSS processes and facilitate business action in support of the summit’s outcomes.
During the pre-summit of the Food Systems Summit 2021 in Rome, on July 26-28 was presented the "Business Declaration for Food Systems Transformation", an official annex to the United Nations Secretary-General's Declaration of Action.
ABACO are proud to be one of the first signatories of this document, whereby businesses and the private sector commit to lead the sustainable transformation of food systems by implementing actions within the supply chain and across the value chain. The UN FSS final event (scheduled for September 2021 in NY ) will bring heads of state together to discuss a systems approach for food systems challenges and agree on a joint path forward.
