7 November 2017, Geneva, Switzerland - The United Nations Partnership for Action on Green Economy (UN PAGE) and Reuters Plus, the branded content studio of the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, today announce a new, media-based partnership around key UN PAGE events.

The partnership, which complements both parties’ sustainable development goals, will focus on shared promotional activity around UN PAGE events and reports, as well as social media cooperation.

Building on the initial successes of the PAGE Ministerial Conference 2017 and the UN PAGE high-level session at the High Level Political Forum of the UN General Assembly, Reuters Plus will work with UN PAGE to promote future meetings and offer practical value to decision-making processes around the world.

“Working with Reuters Plus will strongly boost our ability to communicate and advance core programmes like the Partnership for Action on Green Economy, designed to support countries and businesses on the cutting edge of sustainability; and we are pleased to partner with them on our shared ambition of driving forward the global goals for sustainable development,” said Steven Stone, Chief of the Resources and Markets Branch, Economy Division, UN Environment, representing UN PAGE.

“Partnering with UN PAGE is in support of our wider initiative to work with global decision makers from across industries who have the collective goal of driving an ESG agenda forward with the collaboration of government bodies and NGOs.” said Munira Ibrahim, Reuters SVP for Sales & Content Solutions.

Under the developed partnership, UN PAGE and Reuters Plus will commence with partnership activities in 2018. 


About UN Partnership for Action on Green Economy
The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) was launched in 2013 as a response to the call at Rio+20 to support those countries wishing to embark on greener and more inclusive growth trajectories.

PAGE seeks to put sustainability at the heart of economic policies and practices to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and supports nations and regions in reframing economic policies and practices around sustainability to foster economic growth, create income and jobs, reduce poverty and inequality, and strengthen the ecological foundations of their economies.

PAGE brings together five UN agencies – UN Environment, International Labour Organization, UN Development Programme, UN Industrial Development Organization, and UN Institute for Training and Research – whose combined mandates, expertise and networks can offer integrated and holistic support to countries on inclusive green economy while ensuring coherence and avoiding duplication of resources.
