Elevating Ambition for Collective Action

The annual UN Global Compact Leaders Summit mobilizes and connects thousands of business leaders, policy makers, civil society and academia representatives, from all over the world, to take action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This year’s virtual Leaders Summit will address the converging crises of climate change, the COVID-19 global pandemic, worsening social and economic inequality, and unchecked corruption, and offer a roadmap for a sustainable recovery.

Over 26 hours, participants and speakers will exchange knowledge, take stock of progress, highlight areas for greater influence, and inspire collective action to make lasting change. 

15 June, 11:00 - 11:45: Light the Way to Glasgow and Net Zero: Credible Climate Action for a 1.5°C World

In this session, Damilola Ogunbiyi and other high-level speakers will discuss the transformational shifts in the economy and society that are already taking place today, accelerated by radical, multi-stakeholder collaboration - and what is needed to accelerate the transition to a net-zero world.
