Since 2016, the UN Global Compact Network Italy has been promoting the Business & SDGs High Level Meeting on an annual basis, which is characterised as a hub for high-level discussion and dialogue on sustainable development issues.

The travelling round table will be attended by Presidents, CEOs and Top Managers of major Italian companies committed to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Specific aims of the initiative are as follows: 

- record and share the commitment of the CEOs on the seventeen SDGs;

- collect good and innovative corporate practices on the global goals in order to enhance them on a national and international level; 

- stimulate the birth of new partnerships.
