The UNDP Growing Sustainable Business (GSB) initiative is a flagship initiative of the UNDP Private Sector Strategy that seeks to broker partnerships that are both commercially attractive and contribute to poverty reduction.

Revolving around the trust placed in UNDP, its country office network, its impartiality, and its unique ability to convene, facilitate, and create new partnerships, the GSB initiative stimulates market driven solutions to poverty through multi-stakeholder market and sub-sector alliances that lead to inclusive business models and contribute to inclusive markets development.
