As we look to recover better from COVID-19, we face a choice: Go back to the world we knew or deal decisively with the issues that make us all unnecessarily vulnerable to future crises. Companies around the world have a unique window of opportunity to develop post-pandemic business strategies that fully integrate the SDGs and help to build more inclusive and sustainable societies.

SDG Ambition is a six month accelerator programme that will challenge and support participating companies of the UN Global Compact in setting ambitious corporate targets and accelerating the integration of the SDGs into core business management.
