Event Details

The UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2016 (22 – 23 June 2016, New York) will provide a dynamic stage to jump-start business action everywhere on the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs address the most important economic, social, environmental and governance challenges of our time, providing a clear and compelling direction for the future. Agreed by all UN Member States, these new global goals are set to be a major driver of the markets of tomorrow and can unleash a wave of sustainable products, services and business innovations.

At the Leaders Summit, companies of all sizes will show how they are transforming their operations and strategies to advance the SDGs – both by doing business more responsibly and finding opportunities for growth and innovation. A highlight of the Summit will be the UN Global Compact SDG Awards honouring sustainability entrepreneurs and innovators around the world who exemplify business as a force for good. Bringing together chief executives with leaders from civil society, government and the UN, the Leaders Summit will inspire companies everywhere to turn global goals into local business.

The UN Global Compact will send invitations to CEOs in February 2016. Please contact us if you have any queries or would like to request an invitation.
