The focus of this year’s Global Compact Leaders’ Summit was on how companies doing business with the United Nations can help advance the Sustainable Development Goals.

Held at the UN on June 22nd and 23rd, the Summit aimed to jump-start business action on the Sustainable Development Goals – or S-D-Gs. To that end, the Global Compact unveiled a multi-year strategy to drive business awareness and activity that supports the achievement of the Goals by 2030. Speaking at the opening session, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon connected the Compact to the SDGs and the Paris Agreement on combating climate change.
