The Spanish Global Compact Network has published ‘SDG, year 4. The leadership of Spanish companies in the 2030 Agenda’ on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the SDGs.

The aim of the publication is to position business leadership as one of the key drivers to boost the changes needed to make them a reality.

In this sense, the document contains, apart from the traditional analysis about the advance of Spanish companies in the SDGs’ contribution, interviews and statements by some of the most relevant CEOs and corporate presidents at the national level. These testimonies mark the tendency to follow by all the entities and everything seems to indicate that 2019 is a new starting point, to activate definitively, the transition from theory to action.

In addition, the pages of the publication develop other topics related to the 2030 Agenda, such as the challenges of the industry 4.0 or the economic opportunities provided by the SDGs. Regarding this last point, four areas of great potential for the sustainable growth of the economy are identified: gender equality, the circular economy, the fight against climate change and the fight against corruption.

Thus, the Global Compact Network Spain aims to convey the need to activate levers that drive a transformation that integrates sustainability into the culture of the organization, in addition to companies establishing public commitments, quantifiable and limited in time. In fact, in the document, 84 national companies demonstrate their contribution to the SDGs by publishing a total of 162 commitments.
