What is ICC Knowledge 2 Go?
Throughout its history, ICC has provided business, government, and society with indispensable resources to ensure that globalisation and the modern international trade system benefit all. ICC’s longevity is rooted in its ability to predict and adapt rapidly to shifts in the global economy, providing expert guidance and practical tools to support businesses of all sizes, in all regions of the world.
In an increasingly digitalised world, ICC Knowledge 2 Go provides a one-stop, online shop for all publications, events, and online training courses offered by the International Chamber of Commerce. Accessible to everyone, ICC Knowledge 2 Go brings ICC’s premier services, publications and events to more people around the world. ICC publications are essential for businesses to thrive. Without access to important standards, such as the Incoterms® rules and Certificates of Origin, business risks costly consequences.
Because ICC is committed to making climate change everyone’s business, ICC Knowledge 2 Go is also helping to reduce ICC’s carbon footprint by diminishing the organisation’s reliance on the production of hardcopy publications.
