For whom is the SDG Ambition?
We call upon all members of Global Compact Netwerk Nederland to sign up for the SDG Ambition. We ask participants to demonstrate commitment to strengthen the business objectives set and take measures to increase progress on SDGs. Each company appoints two representatives to participate in the program. In addition, an “SDG Champion” at the executive level is designated to monitor the developments in the program and provide support where necessary.
