Jeff Erikson to Participate in UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2013
On Friday, September 20th, Jeff Erikson, SustainAbility’s Senior Vice President, will participate in the Action Fair / Jumpstart Action from 12 – 2 pm during the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2013: Architects of a Better World.
Chaired by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the Leaders Summit will bring together, to New York, chief executives with leaders from civil society, Government and the United Nations to unveil a new global architecture for corporate sustainability. As the Millennium Development Goals 2015 deadline approaches, the Summit will set the stage for business to shape and advance the post-2015 development agenda – putting forward an architecture for business to contribute to global priorities, such as climate change, water, food, women’s empowerment, children’s rights, decent jobs and education, at unprecedented levels.
Through a mix of plenary and executive working sessions, the Summit will solicit input by participants on the development and implementation of the corporate sustainability architecture leading up to 2015.
