Abstract

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate that a wide range of entities associated with the State and which engage in business or investment activities on behalf of the State have an important role to play in the promotion and implementation of the sustainable development goals found in the 2030 Agenda. The contribution starts with a background to the 2030 Agenda, followed by an introduction to the features of State-owned entities. Since the 2030 Agenda requires the ‘mobilization of all available resources’ to achieve its implementation, it is argued that entities that are owned by States could have a significant role to play in this context. Examples of good practices from a number of jurisdictions show how the development and implementation of domestic measures that cover State-owned entities have the potential to contribute to the promotion and implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
