What is the objective of the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit?
The UN Global Compact Leaders Summit (21 September, New York) brings together an international community of leaders from business, civil society, academia, Government and the United Nations to accelerate local and global business action and partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
With less than 5,000 days to meet the 17 Global Goals by the 2030 deadline, the Leaders Summit seeks to challenge the status quo and the business-as-usual mindset. Featuring progressive and exciting plenary speakers alongside SDG-themed networking opportunities, the Summit will focus on how the UN Global Compact community can deliver measurable impact for sustainable development.
By raising the ambition level, driving innovation and measuring the impact of responsible business action rooted in the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, we can ensure a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous future for all.
When and where will the Leaders Summit 2017 take place?
The Leaders Summit will take place on Thursday, 21 September during the United Nations General Assembly week — the UN's most high-profile week of the year — at the New York Hilton Midtown, located at 1335 6th Ave, New York, NY, 10019.
