The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out a clear vision for a sustainable future, also shaping a new era for business. As part of our Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, each year, the UN Global Compact celebrates a group of SDG Pioneers — business leaders who are doing an exceptional job to advance the Global Goals through the implementation of our Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
In the spirit of giving young people a seat at the table to build a sustainable future, this year the UN Global Compact will focus its search for SDG Pioneers to young professionals aged 35 and under.
Earlier this year, Global Compact Local Networks in several countries hosted national-level SDG Pioneers programmes. These winners will automatically take part in the global round along with other candidates.
The 2019 UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers will be announced and recognized during the 74th Session of the UN General Assembly in New York this September.
