The Business Council for the United Nations (BCUN)
The Business Council for the United Nations (BCUN) is a catalyst for action, understanding and innovative business opportunities between member companies and the United Nations. Through its network of partnerships in economic development, health, education, and technology, the Council advances the common interest of both the UN and the business community working toward a more prosperous and secure world.
In this era of globalization, it is increasingly important to engage business and industry leaders with the vital work of the United Nations. Every day corporations are increasingly engaging in efforts to combat poverty, hunger and disease while providing vital support and opportunities for the education of millions across the globe. The United Nations is leading the world in these efforts in setting international policies and standards to make our world better and safer for all. The goal of the Business Council for the United Nations is to provide our members with unique opportunities to directly connect with the United Nations and its extended network of organizations and country representatives working in areas of interest to them and their companies.
For over five decades members have counted on BCUN to serve as their essential link to the United Nations community. Based in New York City, we provide access to the largest diplomatic community in the world.
What does BCUN offer?The Business Council for the United Nations provides its members with access to the policy makers at the UN working on subjects of interest to their companies, and we keep them informed about topics relevant to their companies through our panel luncheons and other events.
