The SUN Business Network aims to harness business expertise and apply its strengths and comparative advantages to improve nutrition.

The Network works to advance opportunities for the business community to support efforts around agriculture, product development, infrastructure systems, distribution channels, or research and innovation.

The SUN Business Network (SBN) has developed a public register of commitment to encourage transparency and accountability. Each organisation wishing to become a member of the SBN will be required to submit:

  1. A statement that the organisation supports and complies with the SUN and SBN Principles of Engagement (see toolkit here); as well as
  2. A statement of its planned or actual contribution (either financial, in-kind or knowledge/technology transfer) to either nutrition-specific interventions or nutrition-sensitive interventions, aligned with the SUN Strategy or one or more individual country’s nutrition action plan.

These commitments will be reviewed by the SBN co-chairs and the SUN secretariat.

Commitments will be posted on the SUN Business Network website. Any organisation submitting a commitment must agree to provide an annual update reporting progress.
