Symposium 2018: The Path to Impact
Organized by Global Compact Network USA
The Path to Impact: Financing and Collective Impact for the SDGs
Citi, 601 Lexington Ave
New York, New York
The Global Compact Network USA’s annual Symposium is the Network’s flagship event, convening US-based members of the UN Global Compact with stakeholders from the public sector, civil society, and the United Nations to advance progress on societal goals.
How can companies make the greatest impact on the Sustainable Development Goals? The theme for this year’s Symposium is ‘The Path to Impact: Financing and Collective Impact for the SDGs,’ and it is designed to move engagement with the SDGs from understanding and alignment to action and impact. In principle, the global community has the resources to address the needs of the 2030 Agenda and meet the SDGs. The challenge is finding the path to get there. The United Nations has established a priority to support financing and business investment in the SDGs and this event has been designed to support that work and further explore additional tools for impact, including innovative business models, target setting, reporting, and multi-stakeholder collaborations.
