ESCAP’s Business Advisory Council
Consisting of executives and representatives of leading businesses in a wide range of industries and sectors, from across the Asia-Pacific region, the ESCAP Business Advisory Council (EBAC) was established in 2004 in Shanghai, China. EBAC’s establishment took place at the first ever Asia-Pacific Business Forum (APBF), which is the only region-wide multi-stakeholder business forum, organized by ESCAP. Since EBAC’s establishment, EBAC members have provided substantive support and in-kind contributions which have continued to enhance APBF’s reach and platform for engaging on development issues affecting the region.
EBAC Sustainable Business Network
In 2012 the Sustainable Business Network (SBN) was set up under the guidance of the ESCAP Business Advisory Council (EBAC), to promote the active engagement of the business sector in addressing the issues of environmental sustainable and social inclusiveness in business, in the Asia and Pacific region.
