The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) lay out a clear vision for a sustainable future and will shape a new era for business. As part of our Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, each year the UN Global Compact celebrates a group of SDG Pioneers– business leaders who are doing an exceptional job of taking action to advance the Global Goals.

The search is now on for the 2017 class of SDG Pioneers!


We are calling on individuals who are doing an exceptional job of taking action on sustainable development issues through their own company or by mobilizing other businesses to do so. SDG Pioneers must be actively helping to reach one or more of the Global Goals while also contributing to business success.


A multi-stakeholder External Selection Group comprised of representatives from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors will vote on the short-listed nominees and identify up to ten SDGPioneers.

The SDG Pioneers will be announced and celebrated at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit on 21 September 2017 in New York. They will receive visibility and recognition throughout the year for their efforts and achievements in advancing the SDGs.


Submission deadline is 26 May 2017.
