In a letter coordinated by the UN Global Compact Network UK and UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD), leaders of over 150 businesses, civil society organisations, and from public life have called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to create a socially just and green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The letter calls on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to use the SDGs to consolidate and future-proof Covid-19 recovery plans in the UK. Signatories include NatWest Group, Nestlé UK & Ireland, RELX, Linklaters, HSBC Group, Mott MacDonald, Unilever, and public figures such as filmmaker Richard Curtis, Sir Mark Moody-Stuart, and the Mayors of Bristol and Liverpool....

The letter recommends that the SDGs are used to:
1. Prioritise the most vulnerable in our society and level-up regional and societal inequalities;
2. Build coherent policies for a healthy planet and to aid the transition to net zero;
3. Unite all sectors behind a plan to build a stronger and more resilient economy.

To help drive responsible corporate action, the United Nations Global Compact is #UnitingBusiness to respond to COVID-19 and providing guidance and support to companies everywhere. A coordinated international plan involving the business sector will be critical in efforts to support people and companies affected, limit further disruption to the economy, and facilitate business continuity for a swift recovery.
