2022 SDG Pioneers Local Round

2022 SDG Pioneers Local Round

31st January 2022 , @ 10.00 AM

As part of the 2022 UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers programme, Global Compact Network India launches its national search for professionals who are committed to advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

By January 31, 2022, our Network will recognize an employee of a participating company as the Global Compact Network India’s SDG Pioneer. The selected Local Pioneer will then have the opportunity to participate in the final search of Global SDG Pioneers to be recognized during the 2022 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit.

In 2022, the UN Global Compact will recognize a new class of Global SDG Pioneers who are setting ambitious SDG targets, scale and impact across their companies through a principles-based approach.

Global Compact Network India welcomes the leadership of companies participating in the UN Global Compact to nominate their employees to the programme and later on join them during the recognition.

Business has a critical role to play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. These exceptional professionals show exactly what can be done by business to make a difference that not only serves shareholders but also society at large. I hope they will also inspire others to join them in uniting in the business of a better world,” said Sanda Ojiambo, CEO & Executive Director of the UN Global Compact.

The 2022 SDG Pioneers campaign aims to recognize a combination of:

- C-suite leaders that have truly innovated their business strategies and operations to drive ambitious SDG targets, scale and impact across their companies
- Any employee working in a GC participating company who has driven such disruptive change and impact

Employees of companies participating in the UN Global Compact are welcome to submit their own application on contributions towards sustainable development or nominate a colleague, inviting them to submit an application for consideration in the programme before January 31, 2022.

About the SDG Pioneers Programme

Each year the UN Global Compact recognizes a class of SDG Pioneers - business leaders working at any level of a company, who are using business as a force for good to advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDG Pioneers play an important role to drum up interest in the Global Goals and in how the UN Global Compact is empowering businesses to advance them. In 2022, the UN Global Compact will again recognize professionals working at any level in a participating company of the UN Global Compact who are setting ambitious SDG targets, scale and impact across their companies through a principles-based approach.
