Action Platforms

To support companies everywhere in advancing the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN Global Compact has developed a portfolio of Action Platforms to inspire new and leading approaches to sustainable business. Rooted in the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact, each Action Platform convenes representatives from business, Global Compact Local Networks, academia, civil society, Government and the United Nations to solve complex sustainability challenges and to innovate around the Global Goals.
