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.

Letter to the Prime Minister
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.
We are honoured to be able to continue the mission of UKSSD.
Since launching in 2015, UKSSD grew to become an influential and thriving cross-sector network. For several reasons, and in the current climate, the network needed to evolve and we’re honoured to continue their mission to advance the SDGs in the UK and to fulfil our shared vision in creating a future where all people in the UK have a good life on a healthy planet. UKSSD’s work will live on through three key projects: Quarterly SDG Huddles, a Food System Working Group, and an SDG Advocacy Working Group.
