Meet the 2018 SDG Pioneers

At the UN Global Compact, we are seeking out people who are turning Global Goals into local business and in doing so we want to motivate many more.

Each year we identify a group of SDG Pioneers to shine a spotlight on individuals who champion sustainability and are mobilizing companies to be a force for good. We invite you to join us on this journey and become a pioneer in the new SDG era.
