The world is not on track as the world approaches the mid-point of implementing the 2030 Agenda. The converging crises of climate change, a deadly global pandemic, worsening social and economic inequality, unchecked corruption and the devastating consequences of the war in Ukraine have caused unprecedented disruption and global transformation.
More than ever, there is an opportunity for business leaders to engage with the United Nations, Governments, and civil society to navigate these challenges and accelerate the progress of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Alongside the SDG Summit 2023, during the UN General Assembly High-Level Week, this year’s UN Global Compact Leaders Summit will convene business leaders, UN officials, Government leaders, SDG stakeholders, and civil society professionals from across the globe to comprehensively review the private sector’s contribution to advancing the SDGs. The Summit will address business leadership during converging crises, the critical role of a principles-based approach, global trends, and tools and partnerships needed to achieve the 2030 Agenda fully.
This inclusive day-long event aims to inspire and challenge organizations to move forward faster by setting measurable, credible, and ambitious targets aligned with calls to action in five systematic areas — gender equality, climate action, living wage, water resilience, and finance & investment — where the private sector is best positioned to advance the 2030 Agenda and drive progress across all 17 SDGs.
