Rio+20 is a conference on implementation. As such, an important part of the conference is about making and delivering commitments. As of 21 June, more than 500 tangible and action oriented commitments have been registered at Rio+20. These include registrations from governments, business & industry, civil society and the UN system.

Under the auspices of the Conference Secretary General, a major press conference event will be held to announce commitments registered at Rio+20. This event will briefly highlight and showcase a select sample of registered commitments by a range of stakeholders.
