ILO and the United States' private sector

Public-private Partnerships (PPPs) play an increasingly important role in promoting decent work around the world, enhancing knowledge and expertise and mobilizing resources through partnerships with enterprises and other non-state actors. The International Labour Organization (ILO) promotes PPPs as an effective and collaborative way to achieve its tripartite-agreed objectives and to promote ILO values, principles and standards. By partnering with the ILO, U.S. companies, foundations and universities can increase the scale and impact of their activities to advance decent work and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
