Proposed by Global Compact Network Canada

Jan. 4, 2022 / CSRwire / – As part of the 2022 United Nations Global Compact’s SDG pioneer agenda, Global Compact Network Canada has launched its national search for professionals committed to advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) United Nations.

Each year, the United Nations Global Compact recognizes a category of SDG pioneers – business leaders working at all levels of a company, who use business as a positive force to advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals ( ODD). SDG pioneers play an important role in generating interest in global goals and how the United Nations Global Compact enables companies to advance them.

The SDG Pioneer program aims to recognize professionals working at all levels in a UN Global Compact participating company who set ambitious SDG goals, scale and impact in their businesses through a principled approach.

“Businesses have a vital role to play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. These exceptional professionals show exactly what companies can do to make a difference that serves not only shareholders but society as a whole. I hope they will also inspire others to join them in unifying in the endeavor of a better world, ”said Sanda Ojiambo, CEO and Executive Director of the United Nations Global Compact.

“The pioneers of the SDGs are the agents of change, who don’t sit around and wait for the future to happen. They create and pave the way for a sustainable future, ”said Ayman Chowdhury, Chief Executive Officer of Global Compact Network Canada. The SDG Pioneer is one of the flagship programs of the United Nations Global Compact which recognizes private sector leaders for their outstanding contributions to the achievement of the SDGs through the implementation of the ten human rights principles , work, the environment and the fight against corruption. “
