New Leadership for a Global Crisis



UN Partner

Offered by

United Nations Global Compact Academy

The UN Global Compact has shared a special appeal for a corporate response to the COVID-19 pandemic: for all companies to take collective action to stem the outbreak through implementing our Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Businesses are also being called upon to stand together to facilitate business continuity for a fast recovery. Effectively addressing this crisis requires an active response from governments, business and the whole of society. Leaders from the UN Secretary General to the Director-General of the World Health Organization have called for Governments and businesses to work together to meet this challenge.

Watch this session to learn:
– How business leaders can respond to the COVID-19 crisis
– How the Ten Principles can provide business leaders with a North Star
– How Governments and business can work together
– The impact COVID-19 will have on the Sustainable Development Goals

– Amina J Mohammed, UN Deputy Secretary-General
– Alan Jope, CEO of Unilever
– Lise Kingo, CEO & Executive Director of the UN Global Compact
