In light of COVID-19, the UN Global Compact is broadcasting a special series of live webinars once per week to provide our 10,000+ participant companies and 3,000+ non-business participants (and others who wish to join free of charge) with information and recommendations on how to cope with and adapt to the COVID-19 crisis.

This Academy session follows the UN Global Compact’s special COVID-19 call-to-action for companies to integrate responsible business principles in their responses to the crisis. In the wake of the economic volatility created by the pandemic, it is clear that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues are material factors that business must manage appropriately. From immediate relief efforts to longer-term recovery strategies, sustainable finance must be part of the solution.
