UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers Programme

UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers Programme

Are you a business leader advancing sustainable development? United Nations Global Compact wants to hear your story?

As part of the UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers programme, Global Compact Local Networks spanning all continents launched a national search for professionals who are committed to achieving the Global Goals.

As part of the UN Global Compact’s Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, each year the UN Global Compact recognizes a class of SDG Pioneers — business leaders working at any level of their company who are using business as a force for good to advance the 17 SDGs.

Through their own company or by mobilizing other businesses, they are helping to reach one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while also contributing to business success.

In 2023 Local Networks spanning all continents will be hosting country-level SDG Pioneers campaigns to identify Local Pioneers who will then be contenders for the Global Round to be recognized at the 2023 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit.
