Integrating International Standards in UN–Business Partnerships
This chapter discusses whether the growing practice of establishing partnerships between the United Nations and the private sector could be based on the emerging standards for corporate environmental accountability. It further explores the question of strengthened UN-business partnerships by using contractual agreements, with a view to better adapting these international standards to specific industry sectors or local circumstances in a collaborative way. The chapter concludes with general recommendations to ensure timely and measurable results for partnerships and with more specific recommendations with regards to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
