March - June 2022


"This war must end, and peace must be established"

UN Secretary General's remarks at a press conference with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy of Ukraine



UN Global Compact Leaders Summit

The world's largest convening of sustainable business leaders on 1-2 June, 2022!


This webinar series will leverage the SDG Business Benchmarks developed by the UN Global Compact, which translate the most business-relevant SDGs into concrete aspirations and strategies for companies. These sessions will deep-dive into the SDG Benchmarks and enable our participants to:

  • Understand how to establish business processes that align with ambitious goals
  • Define roadmaps using newly launched tools to enable business transformation
  • Discover the latest approaches in delivering comparable, quantifiable, and impactful data
  • Take practical action - for companies of all sizes and sectors
  • Secure senior management buy-in
  • Attract sustainable financing.


Business risks are evolving at a more rapid rate than ever as the world experiences extreme levels of disruption in the forms of climate, health, economic, and social justice crises. Business risks stemming from each of these crises are increasingly inter-related and must be addressed via an integrated approach, only then can companies effectively build resilience and thrive.

The UN Global Compact Network UK is organising a four-part Climate and Business & Human Rights webinar series that will support companies to take holistic action to address climate and human rights-related issues.


To support companies to reduce carbon emissions across their value chain, the UN Global Compact Network UK is hosting a series of topical webinars exploring how companies can tackle Scope 3 emissions categories as defined by the GHG Protocol. Participants will hear from climate specialists and business leaders as they share best practices for identifying, measuring, and reducing their Scope 3 emissions. Nine webinars are scheduled between17th March and 5th July.
