The fifth Trade for Sustainable Development (T4SD) Forum, organized by the International Trade Centre (ITC), will  be held from 1 – 3 October at ITC headquarters in Geneva. The T4SD Forum will discuss SDG 12 “Responsible Consumption and Production” and its relationship with sustainable trade in global value chains. SDG 12 aims at “doing more and better with less”, by promoting a more resource efficient economy and encouraging industries, companies and consumers to move towards more sustainable patterns of consumption. For global value chains, shifting towards greener production practices demands collaboration among all actors from producers to final consumers.

The T4SD Forum 2018 is held in parallel to the World Trade Organization (WTO) Public Forum 2018.


The objectives of this year’s T4SD Forum:

  • Provide a unique platform to discuss sustainable trade practices and identify innovative best practices – vis-à-vis the implementation of SDG 12.
  • Identify challenges and opportunities for SMEs arising from a shift to a greener economy for the implementation of SDG 12.
  • Leverage ITC’s contribution to the Global Goals through support to SME international competitiveness for inclusive and sustainable growth through value addition, trade, investment and global partnerships.
