Type of Funding
The UN Global Compact is inviting nominations of business leaders who are doing an exceptional job to advance the Global Goals through a principles-based approach, for the 2018 SDG Pioneers. These should be individuals working at any level in a company, who are helping to reach 1 or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while also contributing to business success. They could be doing this through their own company or by mobilizing other businesses.
SDG Pioneers will be recognized and celebrated at the Leaders Summit on 24 September 2018. They will receive visibility and be recognized for the great work that they have done to advance the Sustainable Development Goals.
Only individuals are eligible, and not organizations. Nominees must be working in a UN Global Compact Participant or Signatory company (see the Official Website for eligible organizations and companies).
Those whose companies are not yet participating in the UN Global Compact, may join UN Global Compact (see the Official Website on how to join).
Self-nominations are accepted.
Applications are to be done online by 15 June 2018.
