The UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2016 (22-23 June 2016, New York) will provide a dynamic stage to jump-start business action everywhere on the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs address the most important economic, social, environmental and governance challenges of our time, providing a clear and compelling direction for the future. Agreed by all UN Member States, these new global goals are set to be a major driver of the markets of tomorrow and can unleash a wave of sustainable products, services and business innovations.
At the next Leaders Summit, companies of all sizes will have the opportunity to show how they are transforming their operations and strategies to promote the SDGs. Conversely, all the participants in the initiative will be able to get in touch with the people and companies of particular interest to them through the "inspirational talks", "intimate roundtables" and SDG-themed networking opportunities that will be organized during the two working days.
The Summit will therefore be characterized by several opportunities for encounters and exchanges between companies and stakeholders giving the parties involved new inspiration in terms of future changes in their business models, products and services while providing an important occasion for the creation of new partnerships.
