Making Global Goals Local Business – Argentina

  • Overview

    Organized by the United Nations Global Compact and Global Compact Network Argentina, Making Global Goals Local Business – Argentina brought together local and global leaders from business, civil society, Government, Global Compact Local Networks and the United Nations to catalyze collective action and impact on the Ten Principles and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As a precursor to global discussions on national SDG progress taking place later this year, the event was an opportunity for business to play an active role as we begin taking stock of progress across Latin America. As a leading example of multi-stakeholder collaboration, Argentina stands as a strong model for others looking to partner at the country-level.
    Taking place from 25 to 26 April in Buenos Aires, the event featured:
    • Concrete examples illustrating how business, UN and Local Network collaboration is driving local impact on the SDGs
    • A review of the progress being made by businesses in Latin America towards sustainable development
    • Opportunities for businesses to connect in-person with Local Networks from around the world
    • The roll-out of the interactive, digital version of the Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs
    • The launch of the 2018 UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers Campaign, including an initial call for nominations
    • Hands-on learning through immersive site excursions
