The Accra Action Charter

The Accra Action Charter

We, Business Leaders and high-level representatives of Business Associations, and Philanthropic Organizations haven met in Accra for the Sustainable Development Goals Investment Fair,

  1. Emphasize that poverty in all its forms and dimensions poses the greatest threat to people and its eradication is an essential requirement for sustainable development. We are concerned by the high number of poverty related challenges and pledge to support government in its bid to fight and eradicate poverty;
     
  2. Agree that the 2030 Agenda is transformative, universal and places people and planet at the center and that the goals are interconnected by the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environment;
     
  3. Affirm our commitment to the tenets of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, which is the main Means of Implementation for the Sustainable Development Goals. We also recognize the Addis Ababa Action Agenda as an integral part of the 2030 Agenda;
     
  4. Support the notion that more has to be done if the Sustainable Development Goals and its targets will be achieved as progress over the last three years of implementation has not been at the pace required and expected;
     
  5. Reiterate the commitment of Businesses to support the effective implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which is a call to ensure “no one is left behind”;
