The SDGs lay out a clear vision for a sustainable future, also shaping a new era for business. As part of the 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, labor, environment, as well as anti-corruption. Hence, in the spirit of giving young people a seat at the table to build a sustainable future, this year the United Nations Global Compact will focus its search for SDG Pioneers Awards to young professionals aged 35 and under.

Benefits of UN SDG Pioneers
