UN Global Compact 2017 Leaders Summit

The UN Global Compact Leaders Summit (21 September, New York) brings together an international community of leaders from business, civil society, academia, Government and the United Nations to accelerate business action and partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Climate Agreement. With less than 5,000 days to meet these Global Goals by the 2030 deadline, the Leaders Summit seeks to challenge the status quo and the business-as-usual mindset. Featuring progressive and exciting plenary speakers alongside SDG-themed networking opportunities, the Summit will focus on how the UN Global Compact community can deliver measurable impacts for sustainable development. By raising the ambition level, driving innovation and measuring the impact of responsible business action rooted in the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, we can ensure a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous future for all. #GCLeadersSummit
