UN-Business Focal Point Newsletter Issue 5 (May 2007)

In this issue, some interesting new partnerships are profiled between, for example, UNECE, Proctor and Gamble and other companies to fight counterfeit goods; Citigroup and the WFP; various UN agencies and the private sector to reduce e-waste; as well as UNEP and the private sector to plant 1 billion trees. The “Tools and Resources” section features John Ruggie’s March 2007 report to the UN on business and human rights; UN OCHA and the WEF’s “Guiding principles for philanthropic private sector engagement in humanitarian action”; and essays from a competition organised by the International Finance Corporation and the Financial Times on innovation and business in development.
