Add to calendar 03-02-2021 10:00 01-01-1970 03:00 Europe/Moscow UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS. LOCAL OUTLOOK AND CORPORATE ACTIONS On February 3, 2021, the multimedia press-center of the international news agency "Russia Segodnya" will host a press briefing to officially launch in Russia and Belarus an international program SDG Ambition initiated by the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in partnership with SAP, Accenture and 3M global companies and supported by PhosAgro, a Global Compact member with LEAD status.
SDG Ambition is a 6-month training accelerator program for companies that have responded to the UN call for more visible and faster business progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals and are interested in gaining new competencies and knowledge that are necessary for transforming business strategies and practices for the SDGs, for broader understanding of the value of business resilience and factors of its long-term growth, for science-based ambitious targets setting and introducing new corporate governance models synchronized with the 2030 Agenda.

The Program is focused on the effectiveness of corporate actions, it takes into account local perspectives in the global context of the SDGs and provides for a series of webinars, lectures, local expert sessions, work on the SDG Ambition online platform, public events and discussions, including within international platforms of the UNGC in 2021. The Program also revolves around specific research, publications and guides offered by the UNGC as recommendations, as well as SDG business benchmarks - sets of measurable criteria and standards designed to meet today's reporting requirements that are applicable to all industries and can be adjusted for any company.

Globally, the program was announced by UN Secretary General António Guterres in January 2020 at the World Economic Forum in Davos: SDG Ambition - Scaling Business Impact for the Decade of Action. In June 2020, at the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, heads of the UN Global Compact and Accenture presented a set of 10 SD
G Business Benchmarks and announced a consultation period, the outcomes of which were considered and presented in a special publication. In September, SDG Ambition guides were presented in partnership with Accenture and SAP within the historic 75th anniversary session of the UN General Assembly and the UN Global Compact side events.

The Global Compact Network Russia is joining the Program together with the Global Compact Network Belarus, thus implementing a "Russia + Belarus" track, which brought together 29 participants from Russia and 11 participants from Belarus, representing the communities of national economies leaders.

Vedomosti, with the support of the UNGC Local Network, will gather experts and companies interested in promoting and implementing the ESG agenda to discuss how effective the regulatory policy has become, what obstacles they had to face “in the field” and what else needs to be improved, whether the financial market is ready for the wave of transformation or not and what economic effect should be expected for all interested parties.
