UN Global Compact Launches Event Series to Accelerate Progress on the SDGs at the Local Level

The United Nations Global Compact is launching a series of events to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the national level. Organized as part of the UN’s ‘Making Global Goals Local Business’ campaign, these events will offer an opportunity for private sector leaders to share best practices and learn from others operating in the same business environment. Starting on Monday in London, the series will also feature events later this year in Canada, Indonesia, Lebanon, Mexico, Sri Lanka (co-hosted with Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan) and Tanzania (co-hosted with Kenya). Each event will be organized by a Global Compact Local Network. Collectively, these events will be an opportunity for the private sector to play a leading role in advancing the SDGs. In the UK, the focus will be on solutions to finance the SDGs, with speakers including Lise Kingo, Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, Chairman of the Foundation for the Global Compact and Paul Simpson, CEO of CDP, along with business leaders from BT, Hermes Investment, HSBC, Unilever and several other companies.
