Auf dem zweitägigen UN Global Compact Leaders Summit in New York kamen mehr als tausend Führungskräfte aus Wirtschaft, Zivilgesellschaft und öffentlichem Sektor mit Vertretern der Vereinten Nationen und Regierungen zusammen.
“The Leaders Summit is the first step on a long-term journey to engage business on the 2030 Agenda. The expectations on business in the new SDG era are immense, but at the same time the opportunities are enormous. We need to invent, develop and launch countless new ideas and solutions within a very short time. Through our Making Global Goals Local Business strategy, we will build a powerful global movement of companies doing business responsibly and innovating around the SDGs to create the world we want.”
Lise Kingo, Exekutivdirektorin des UN Global Compact
“The UN Global Compact is uniquely prepared and positioned to lead business in the SDG era. Achieving the SDGs will require unprecedented cooperation, radical innovation and extraordinary leadership. And it will require us each to be a pioneer, forging ahead into new territory. That means taking personal and corporate responsibility for how we do business and who we choose as our staff and partners. It means taking stock of our decisions as consumers and investors. It means raising our voices and taking a stand when it matters. The United Nations Global Compact is the forum to make all this happen.”
Ban Ki-moon, Generalsekretär der Vereinten Nationen
