Are you one of the 2021 SDG Pioneers?
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out a precise vision for a sustainable future and forge a new era for business. In relation to our Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, every year, the UN Global Compact celebrates a group of SDG Pioneers — business leaders who are doing an extraordinary task to improve the Global Goals through the execution of our Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
In our search for the 2021 cohort of SDG Pioneers, we motivate professionals working at any level of a UN Global Compact-participating company who are leveraging a principles-based approach to develop ambitious, scalable and impactful SDG targets to apply.
SDG Pioneers are setting the path for the future we all desire.
Are you a business leader promoting sustainable development? Submit your feasibility story to be considered as one of the 2021 SDG Pioneer! There is also a chance to nominate others.
The global round opened on 11 January
The nomination deadline is 15 March 2021.
Pioneers for the 2021 UN Global Compact SDG will be disclosed and celebrated in June 2021 at the Leaders Summit in New York.
