The United Nations Global Compact, in collaboration with 15 Global Compact Country Networks and country offices in the Asia & Oceania region, is organizing the Forward Faster Now | Asia & Oceania.

Hosted by the UN Global Compact Network Malaysia & Brunei, the regional flagship event aims to convene high-level executives and leaders from the private sector, Government, corporate sustainability and sustainable development practitioners and experts, and Global Compact Country Networks from the Asia & Oceania region to drive business ambition on the Sustainable Development Goals, take stock of the progress made so far in the region, examine existing gaps and highlight scalable solutions that resonate with the region’s unique context.

The event will challenge businesses to move Forward Faster Now and set ambitious targets in key sustainability areas.
