Hamburg Sustainability Conference

The Hamburg Sustainability Conference is a new initiative to build global solutions for the social-ecological transformation our planet desperately needs. Its goal is to establish a trustful and collaborative exchange among world leaders from the Global South and the Global North, as a means to accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is an initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, in close cooperation with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Michael Otto Foundation, and the City of Hamburg.

The conference will provide an opportunity to discuss critical topics such as making value chains more sustainable, barriers to sustainable development goal implementation, and how the private sector can support SDG achievement. It aims to foster new partnerships and collective action amongst committed global policymakers, private sector leaders, academia experts, and civil society. The HSC’s joint solutions will be incorporated into the UN’s high-level Summit of the Future in September 2024.
