The Business Forum provides a unique multi-stakeholder platform to support business action and partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – fostering public-private dialogues, catalyzing new partnerships and alliances, and exploring innovative business solutions to accelerate sustainable development. 

Kaneka PHBH™ can replace common plastic products such as plates, straws, cups, cutlery or any other single-use items.

Kaneka hopes to find an alternative solution to the current single-use plastic products as the company recognizes the need to bring to market a plant-based product that will help reduce the Ocean and Landfill pollution. Currently, it is estimated that about 8 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean every year which has created a massive environmental issue in the world's oceans**

We are extremely honored to be part of this event taking place during the Climate Summit week in New York City . This event is hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce and Global Compact and features high-level government and corporate speakers from around the world.
