International SME Day – Live Regional Exchanges
Engage in our regional exchange session to learn from peers across sectors in your region on how they have successfully integrated sustainability into their business strategy and operations, and key lessons learned.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the engine of private-sector growth in both developing and developed economies, yet they face unique challenges in integrating sustainability strategies that are critical to long-term business success and resilience. Leaders at all levels of SMEs have a lot on their plate, and often fewer resources than their larger counterparts. They may feel they lack the time, knowledge, capacity or funds to tackle global challenges like the climate crisis or discrimination against minorities. Others simply do not know where to start.
The UN Global Compact invites you to join the Small Business, Big Impact: A Six-Step Journey to Drive Sustainability and Business Growth – a new high-impact, interactive learning journey designed specifically for SMEs.
Through weekly emails and activities, you will join peers in five short, on-demand courses, one live peer exchange session, and a toolkit offered in multiple languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Arabic) and time zones. Get ready to make progress towards a more sustainable and resilient future — regardless of your region, industry or sector. Register for the full learning journey here.
