New York, NY, USA, Jan. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, is looking to recognize a new class of SDG Pioneers with nominations starting this week.

The annual SDG Pioneers programme honors company professionals who are using business to advance and advocate for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Among the SDG Pioneers in 2021, Italy’s Giulia Giuffre was awarded for steering Irritec, her family’s company, into championing sustainable water management. In Ghana, Bewsys founder Robert Okine was recognized for his achievement in digital innovation and inclusion at his company, where he incorporates social protection and good governance into its business solutions.

Other SDG Pioneers have excelled in efforts around renewable energy, supply chain management and education in Brazil, Thailand, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon and elsewhere. The 2021 SDG Pioneers winners can be seen here.

Up to 10 new SDG Pioneers for 2022 will be announced and recognized during the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, a virtual event taking place in June 2022, and will be profiled on the UN Global Compact website.

Business professionals working at any level of a company that participates in the UN Global Compact are encouraged to apply. Applicants can nominate themselves or others. Applications will be accepted from 14 January to 15 March.
