Project Description

Programme Overview

The Sustainable Development Goals lay out a clear vision for a sustainable future, representing an opportunity to shape a new era for responsible business. As part of our Making Global Goals Local Business work, each year the United Nations 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, labour, environment and anti-corruption. In our search for the 2020 SDG Pioneer from Bangladesh, we encourage professionals working at any level of a UN Global Compact participating company from Bangladesh who are leveraging a principles-based approach to set ambitious, scalable and impactful SDG targets to apply.

National SDG Pioneers submission period opened 17 February 2020

As part of the UN Global Compact SDG Pioneers programme, Global Compact Network Bangladesh (GCNB) launched on 17 February 2020 a national search for professionals who are committed to achieving the Global Goals. Selected Pioneer from Bangladesh will be locally recognized and advance to the global round which will open on 21 May 2020 (more information on the global round is available below).
