Business Council for Global Development

Responsible Business for Inclusive Development.

We educate and actively support capacity building programs that advance sustainable and inclusive development.

BCGD was the thought leader and advocate for the first capacity building program linked to a U.S. trade agreement.

We convene diverse leaders from business, government, and civil society in order to develop programs and policies for better development outcomes through international trade and investment.

We explore the roles and responsibilities of business in advancing sustainable and inclusive development.

BCGD is working with civil society organizations and businesses to support programs that create jobs for refugees and their host communities.

Inclusive Development and International Trade

BCGD partners with civil society organizations, such as the Alliance to End Hunger, on a series of programs exploring the role of international trade in driving inclusive and sustainable development.
