UN Global Compact Network UK’s Responsible Business & SDGs Summit

Business stakeholders are demanding companies do better. Inequality, climate change, plastic pollution – business has a critical role to play in addressing these crises. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide the framework for responsible business to
help create the future we want.

Taking place July 20th-21st, this flagship event will convene 2000+ CEOs, business experts, CSOs, investors, and high-level representatives from Government, the United Nations, and civil society. The Summit will share best practice solutions to sustainability challenges and inspire participants to new heights of responsible business leadership through support for the Global Goals.

The fantastic line-up of speakers includes Paul Polman, former CEO, Unilever and now Co-founder of IMAGINE and Co-chair, UN Global Compact, who will be opening the event.

Join the Summit to explore:
• Corporate reporting on the SDGs with GRI and PwC;

22-25 March | Carbon Literacy Open Course

Join us for the next Carbon Literacy open course where you will learn about the links between human activity and climate change and develop the knowledge to enable you and your organisation to take action to reduce carbon emissions.

Who should attend?

Carbon Literacy works on the principle of peer-to-peer learning and encourages people to learn together, sharing knowledge and experiences along the way. The climate science is pitched for beginners but the approach to enabling and identifying positive action works for all abilities.

This course is suitable for those in a position to lead, organise or support others. This could be senior managers and teams leaders, board members or trustees, support workers or volunteers.
