UN Global Compact Leaders Summit


Alongside the SDG Summit 2023, during the UN General Assembly High-Level Week, this year’s UN Global Compact Leaders Summit will convene business leaders, UN officials, Government leaders, SDG stakeholders and civil society professionals from across the globe to comprehensively review the private sector’s contribution to advancing the SDGs. The Summit will address business leadership during converging crises, the critical role of a principles-based approach, global trends, and tools and partnerships needed to achieve the 2030 Agenda fully.

This inclusive day-long event aims to inspire and challenge organizations to move forward faster by setting measurable, credible and ambitious targets aligned with calls to action in five systematic areas — gender equality, climate action, living wage, water resilience, and finance & investment — where the private sector is best positioned to advance the 2030 Agenda and drive progress across all 17 SDGs
