Our SDG Integration webinar series guides you through a strategic and integrated approach to the SDGs.

Action on the Sustainable Development Goals is needed now more than ever. Achieving the SDGs will take an unprecedented effort by all sectors in society. As a blueprint for a more sustainable and inclusive future, the Goals represent a compelling growth strategy for business, an opportunity to build back better from the Covid-19 pandemic, and a chance for companies to lead the way in fighting inequalities, ending extreme poverty, and protecting our planet.

In this four-part webinar series, the UN Global Compact Network UK and a diverse group of expert guest speakers will provide the insight, tools, and practical guidance for developing a strategic and integrated approach to the SDGs. This series was supported by RELX.
