2021 Annual Leaders Summit

The UN Global Compact 2021 Leaders Summit was held on 15-16 June 2021, convening more than 25,000 leaders from business, Government, the UN, and Civil Society, to take stock of the state of progress, highlight the areas for greater influence, and drive collective action on focused issues to make lasting change.

Recognizing that the world can only get back on track through multi-stakeholder collaboration, innovative thought leadership, transparent reporting on progress, and focused data-driven initiatives, Participants at the Summit sought to collectively elevate ambition for strategic collective action, with focused objectives and clear paths to recovery from the continued climate crisis, global pandemic, economic disparities, and social inequalities.

Now, more than ever before, adherence to the Ten Principles and advancement of responsible business practices is essential for recovery and rebuilding a just, equitable, and resilient society.

Together, we can unite business for a better world.
