WBCSD has taken a leadership role in the Nutrition for Growth Summit by co-chairing the N4G Business Constituency Group (BCG) and representing the private sector on the N4G Advisory Group. 在与波士顿咨询公司的合作下，WBCSD领导了该 为更好的营养负责的业务承诺预计该项目将在N4G峰会上获得众多承诺. 以下声明反映了波士顿咨询集团所有成员的N4G活动和承诺.
营养促增长(N4G)于2013年在联合利华总部推出, 这反映了他们从创业的第一天起就雄心勃勃地认为商业可以帮助对抗营养不良. 但在2013年，具体的商业承诺很少，而且是临时的.
2021年是不同的. 为什么? 两年前, the Dutch and Japanese Governments supported a conference of business leaders in The Hague to launch a collective effort by business to support N4G to drive greater action toward ending malnutrition and helping ensure everyone, 任何地方都能充分发挥自己的潜力. 六大主要商业组织-亚洲食品工业(FIA), 消费品论坛(CGF), 国际食品饮料联盟(IFBA), 太阳商业网络(SBN), Nutrition Japan Public Private Platform (NJPPP) and the 新时代赌场亚洲最佳(WBCSD) – formed the N4G Business Constituency Group (BCG). The Access to Nutrition Initiative (ATNI) and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) supported this working group, which was itself a “first” - bringing together different associations around a common goal.
That goal was to identify ways that businesses large and small could support efforts to tackle all forms of malnutrition, recognizing that most of the core underlying problems of malnutrition can never be addressed without actions by those that grow, 制造, 向消费者分发和销售食品. The BCG's efforts have focused on the second thematic area of the N4G Summit “Diets: Building food systems that promote healthy diets and nutrition” and provides a strong bridge between the UN 食物 Systems Summit and N4G. 两国领导人进行了如下合作 这个联合声明 to advance the nutrition agenda and deliver on a deeper, holistic food systems transformation.
波士顿咨询集团共同制定了智能承诺的五个领域. These will be set out as a contribution to N4G in Tokyo and highlight the BCG’s commitment to better nutrition globally:
第一: “负责任的企业承诺”(RBP): 的RBP, 由WBCSD和IFBA在更广泛的商业团体的支持下开发, is a framework to enable private sector leadership and SMART commitment-making for the N4G Summit. 完全与 N4G承诺指南和参与原则, it calls on business leaders to make nutrition a board-level priority and for each corporate signatory to bring forward at least three SMART commitments to N4G spanning several commitment areas that link to core business models and operations: Nutrition-Smart Agriculture, 改进营养的产品配方和创新, 改善营养的商业模式创新, 负责市场营销, 促进健康饮食, 劳动力营养和改善营养的金融和投资. 在N4G峰会的第一天, WBCSD will share an overview of the history and work of the BCG as well as the development of the RBP. 可以找到一些WBCSD成员公司最近的营养承诺 在这里.
第二:新 投资者联盟:这设定了投资者对公司治理的期望, 策略, 对食品和饮料制造商和零售商的游说和透明度. 在ATNI的支持下，76个投资者代表16美元.6 trillion in assets under management have signed up to the Investor Expectations on Nutrition, 饮食和健康, 从而加入了联盟. 在N4G峰会的第一天, the investor coalition will be presented by the Japanese investment firm Resona Asset Management.
第三: 国际食品和饮料联盟 会员公司一直在努力 作为负责任企业承诺的一部分，新的全球营养承诺. 第一个新承诺是关于钠的减少. IFBA has set new global targets for maximum sodium content of packaged foods across some forty food sub-categories, 2025年和2030年. Each IFBA company will commit to meeting these targets across key categories that together comprise at least 75% of the company’s sales. This is the first time ever that collective voluntary global sodium content targets are set in the private sector. 其次，IFBA制定了一项加强的全球负责任营销政策. 基于这一政策, IFBA companies must either limit products they market to children under 13 to products that meet a set of specific nutrition criteria; or refrain from directing marketing to children under 13 altogether. This is a minimum global standard with which all IFBA companies commit to comply with as of 2022. IFBA will elaborate upon these commitments in the thematic session on 食物 Systems for Healthy Diets during day two of the N4G Summit.
第四: 劳动力营养联盟, co-led by CGF and GAIN, supports employers to adopt and expand workforce nutrition programs. 到2025年，它将影响其组织和供应链中的300万员工. 最近的签字人, 谷歌, 将在N4G峰会的第一天向劳动力营养联盟报告.
第五:中小企业(SMEs):太阳商务网认捐一项 的承诺 to raise awareness of the role of SMEs in nutrition and with the support of partners strengthen the capacity of SMEs to provide nutritious foods. 这些承诺包括征聘3人,非洲的000家中小企业, 亚洲, 和拉丁美洲，到2024年底. 在N4G峰会的第二天, 在食品系统促进健康饮食会议上, SBN将提出这些承诺.
Underpinning these initiatives are actions by many hundreds of companies to change their business models, 实践和操作. Ajinomoto will give one example of what Japanese businesses are doing to help address all forms of malnutrition. 谷歌, DSM and Unilever will share additional international examples of nutrition leadership during the N4G Summit as well. SMART承诺中包含了这些变化, 它们加在一起就形成了市场规模的变化, 并将使每个社会的数十亿消费者受益.
还有其他领域，防御工事, which helps deliver better nutrition resilience; improving finance for SMEs; tackling anaemia deficits - in which businesses are key players. 零饥饿私营部门承诺, 这是联合国粮食系统峰会上提出的, gat在这里d commitments worth a total of $400 million by 40+ companies working with UN and development agencies, and is a further example of how to scale impact alongside government spending and aid dollars.
T在这里 is no room for complacency - a daunting set of challenges continues to be ahead of us. 过去两年来，超重和肥胖的营养不良数字不断恶化, 饥饿, 缺乏微量营养素和负担不起健康饮食的人, 使食物成为众多相互关联的贫困问题的中心, 不发达, 气候和环境退化. 这些最好放在一起处理, and the Business Constituency Group looks forward to the continued dialogue with governments and civil society on how best to do this. 波士顿咨询集团致力于积极变革，但单靠我们无法取得必要的影响. 让我们共同努力，将改善营养作为可持续粮食系统的一部分.
