Forward Faster

We’re halfway to 2030, but there’s not nearly enough action happening at the pace and scale needed to deliver on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and meet the 2030 Agenda. Forward Faster is a new UN Global Compact initiative, here to help companies accelerate progress towards all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, by focusing on where they can make the biggest, fastest impact for 2030.

The Forward Faster initiative aims to increase accountability and transparency by calling for companies to publicly declare their commitments and highlight the actions they will undertake to meet the targets. Companies committing to the targets will be required to report on progress annually to the UN Global Compact.

5 Areas of Action

Ambitious corporate action starts here. These 5 areas of action have been selected because they have the power to accelerate progress across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and are where the private sector can collectively make the biggest, fastest impact by 2030.
