United Nations Sustainable Development


On September 25, 2015, 193 world leaders committed to the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the center. These SDGs, which took effect on Jan 1, 2016, present a historic and unprecedented opportunity to bring countries, companies and citizens of the world together in new ways to improve the lives of people around the world.

The Global Sourcing Council has developed the “17 Weeks / 17 SDGs” Initiative to help businesses translate these aspirational global goals into action. To join us, please download our GSC 17/17 SDGs Prospectus and contact Louis Coppola or Wanda Lopuch.

The GSC 17 / 17 program aims to:

  • Inform and engage the global business community in the 2030 Agenda;
  • Provide global visibility for businesses embracing SDGs in their business strategies; and
  • Share best practices of SDG-embracing leaders to inspire others.
