The United Nations Development Goals and how Tradesnest is making an impact

Tradesnest mission

According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, over the past decade global manufacturing growth has been steadily declining due to tariffs and trade tensions. Moreover, in many developing countries basic infrastructure such as roads, sanitation, electrical power and water remains insufficient to sustain growth.

We, at Tradesnest, are aware of these global problems and we believe that providing the right technology that gives access to the same distribution channels whether the innovation comes from a developed or a developing country will help alleviate these problems and support economical growth. Tradesnest is a global B2B online platform allowing innovative products from anywhere to reach new markets by connecting them with recognized distributors and retailers internationally and we have made it our mission to contribute to the UN development goals by providing access to distribution channels to products from the developing world.

Disrupting the Trade Show Industry and helping the environment
Tradesnest online platform helps SME’s build business relationships with buyers around the world and reduce or remove the need for the trade shows or other commercial fairs where buyers and sellers would traditionally meet. As a result, the CO2 footprint these events create would be significantly reduced. We are digitizing the trade show industry while increasing trade and help reduce carbon emissions as a result.

Tradesnest Has Been Recognized for Disrupting the Trade Show Industry 
We are excited to share that Tradesnest has been nominated as an innovator in the Industry & Infrastructure category for the Blue Tulip Awards by Accenture!
The Blue Tulip Awards are based on the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals whereas Tradesnest is selected in the category based on number 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure. For those who do not know number 9 stands for building resilient infrastructure, promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and fostering innovation. 
Tradesnest is being recognized for its focus on digitization by disrupting the trade show industry and additionally: 

  • Helping SMEs from developed and developing countries to generate business that will allow them to grow, create employment and income. 
  • Levelling the playing field by providing companies in developing countries the same access to new markets.
  • Striving to help reduce carbon emissions by digitizing the trade show industry while removing trade barriers.
