Today, the UN Global Compact started Peer Learning Groups, which will bring together sustainability leaders from different industries and sectors to discuss important sustainability issues, share best practices, and build a network of professionals with similar goals.

Through facilitated sessions, curated resources, and group discussions, participants can gain insights and share knowledge in a safe and regulated environment.

Coordinated with Global Compact Local Networks, the Peer Learning Groups in 2023 will focus on four priority areas—climate action, gender equality, labour and human rights, and Small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs)—to move companies towards taking ambitious action on these issues.

Commenting on the launch of the new virtual offering, Sanda Ojiambo, Assistant Secretary-General and CEO of the UN Global Compact, said, “To support companies advance their sustainability journey, our new Peer Learning Groups offer professionals opportunities to connect with — and learn from—their peers. We have seen there is a growing desire for community and connection as businesses navigate more complex business environments and a dynamic and fast-changing stakeholder and sustainability landscape.”
