The United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-2) will from 23rd – 27th May, 2016 hold the 6th Sustainable Innovations Expo, which will unite 1200 Environment Ministers and high level delegates at UNEP’s Headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, to discuss the deliverance of the environmental dimensions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Assembly is recognised as the highest level, most politically influential meeting on the global environment, with the inaugural meeting in 2014 spurring country level policy resolutions on topics including illegal trade in wildlife, chemical waste and marine plastic.
2015 was a transformative year for global policy, with the SDGs and COP21 placing environmental considerations at the forefront of future growth. In order to drive the low carbon transition at the pace and scale required, engagement of the private sector is key in developing the innovative solutions required to transform existing systems and create entirely new ways of living.
This 6th edition will unite a combination of large established organisations, such as ABB and Siemens, and smaller, innovative companies to exhibit their solutions. The Expo presents a unique opportunity to engage directly with environment ministers and policy makers looking to advance sustainable development in their country- providing an exclusive platform on which to make demonstrate leadership in the field.
