UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2020

Event Postponed till Summer 2021

Due to the unpredictable nature of COVID-19, the UN Global Compact has postponed the Leaders Summit that was set to take place on June 15-16 in New York to summer 2021. 

About the event

Recognizing the urgency of the challenges facing us, and building on two decades of principled business leadership, the Leaders Summit 2021 will be the ultimate corporate sustainability “platform of platforms”, bringing together more diverse content partners and multistakeholder participants than ever.

The Leaders Summit will convene more than 1,000 of the world’s foremost corporate sustainability leaders to discuss and debate the values of the UN, the future of multilateralism and the role that principles-based business can play in driving progress on the Global Goals. Through a combination of inspiring plenary sessions, exhibitions, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, the Summit will feature innovative examples of how multistakeholder partnerships are unlocking new business opportunities and capital, while also driving impact on the ground.

For the past 20 years, the UN Global Compact has been building a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. Now, we need the right kind of leader to take this movement to the next level. If you are a corporate sustainability leader or aspire to be one, we invite you to join us in New York from 15 to 16 June 2021
