Jacobs at URC23

Supporting the recovery and reconstruction of Ukraine through collaboration and innovation

Jacobs joined companies around the world in signing the Ukraine Business Compact 2023 – a declarative statement of international business support for Ukraine’s recovery.

The Business Compact officially launched at this year's Ukraine Recovery Conference (URC23) in London and mobilizes the international community to help secure Ukraine’s long-term economic future, including helping it to build back better, as a more resilient, greener and more prosperous European nation.

Both Jacobs and leading innovation and transformation consulting firm PA Consulting are participating in URC23, where Jacobs CEO Bob Pragada addressed the conference on the importance of the private sector’s role in supporting Ukraine’s recovery, some of the likely challenges international firms will face in responding to Ukraine’s needs, and what needs to be done to overcome these.

Bob spoke as part of Plenary 2 - Scale of the Recovery Challenge on June 21. Watch his presentation below.

“The private sector can play a central role in driving collaboration across stakeholders to bring the best of each to innovate, build capacity and ensure we are doing this with Ukraine, not to Ukraine. It requires long-term commitment and continuity from all, working in an open and honest culture that welcomes challenge and feedback to find better ways to help deliver the best outcomes.”
