Three years in to the 2030 Agenda, we have seen many stakeholders step up to the challenge. Businesses continue to find new ways to pursue the global goals as a strategic business agenda. But despite some progress, some pressing global concerns remain. We need to turn to working out the real mechanisms of development. The world leaders understand that we need all hands on deck and the time to act is now. UN Global Compact Leaders Summit is a real instrument for building cooperation between business, governments and national networks for SDGs achievement
