The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is an ambitious people-centered, rights-based call to action that explicitly recognizes the role of the business as a key partner. In parallel, the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact are foundational to sustainable business, bringing together universally-accepted standards of conduct across human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. As a result, implementing the Ten Principles is itself a key contribution to the realization of the prosperous, inclusive, peaceful and sustainable world envisioned within the Global Goals. In this dynamic conversation, hear from past UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers about their efforts to use a principles-based approach to take leading action in support of the Global Goals, including through the use of the Blueprint for Business Leadership on the SDGs.
