About us

The Business Council for Sustainable Development in Hungary (BCSDH) is a coalition of forward-thinking CEOs of more than 130 leading companies which account for around 30% of Hungarian GDP, working together to accelerate the system transformations necessary for a climate-neutral, nature-positive and fairer future. The BCSDH aims to generate changes in models and business solutions in Hungary that have a real impact on climate change and can generate real responses to domestic challenges due to their take up by other companies.

BCSDH offers a unique collaborative platform for non-competitive cooperation, by developing recommendations and presenting good examples, we help the sharing of knowledge between companies in order to jointly find answers to these challenges. We encourage our member companies and the business sector to develop constructive business solutions and take joint action. With company leaders, involving nearly 200 corporate, civil and scientific experts, in cooperation with ministries, partner organizations and embassies, we map obstacles and opportunities, find solutions and represent the voice of business in sustainability issues.
