Will you join us in taking bold action for the Sustainable Development Goals?
Register now for the SDG Ambition Accelerator Programme
Despite progress made in many areas, we are not on track to deliver on the UN Global Compact’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
In fact, the UN Global Compact Progress Report 2020 reveals that only 39% of companies surveyed believe they have targets that are ambitious enough to meet the SDGs by 2030 — and less than a third think their industry is moving fast enough to deliver priority SDGs. While 84% of the companies surveyed are taking action on SDGs, only 46% are embedding them into their core business — and only 37% are designing business models that contribute to the SDGs.
While we continue to face numerous challenges related to the COVID-19 crisis, the next year provide a unique opportunity to develop post-pandemic business strategies that fully integrate the SDGs and help build more inclusive and sustainable societies.
That’s why Global Compact Network Switzerland & Liechtenstein is joining local networks around the world in launching SDG Ambition, a six-month accelerator programme to challenge and support participating companies of the UN Global Compact in setting ambitious corporate targets and accelerating integration of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into core business management. SDG Ambition enables companies to move beyond incremental progress and step-up transformative change - unlocking business value, building business resilience, and enabling long-term growth.
Registration is now open and runs through 30 September 2020. If you’re ready to step up to transformative change, join us. Contact the Global Compact Local Network in your country to learn more about how your company can get involved. In case your company has subsidiaries in the countries listed above, please feel free to forward this email to them.
