The search is on for the United Nations Global Compact Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Pioneer 2019. SDG Pioneers are individuals – working at any level in a company – who are doing an exceptional job of making global goals local business. 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.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out a clear vision for a sustainable future and will shape a new era for business. As part of our Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, each year the UN Global Compact celebrates a group of SDG Pioneers — business leaders who are doing an exceptional job to advance the Global Goals through a principles-based approach.
Are you the next SDG Pioneer?
- The SDG Pioneers will be announced and celebrated in September 2019 during the UN General Assembly week. The SDG Pioneers will receive visibility and be recognized for the great work that they have done to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.
