More than 200 UN Global Compact members came together recently for a seminar in Bangkok to find ways to improve the global economy amid the massive impact of Covid-19 while maintaining SGDs, or sustainable development goals.

The August 31 seminar, “GCNT Forum 2020: Thailand Business Leadership for SDGs”, was organised by Global Compact Network Thailand, a group of companies committed to encouraging businesses nationwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies with a focus on human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption.

This year also marks the 20th anniversary of United Nations Global Compact.

Prime Minister Prayut Cha-o-cha presided over the forum, giving a speech.

As president of Global Compact Network Thailand, Charoen Pokphand Group chief executive Suphachai Chearavanont announced his group’s intention to become a leader in sustainable business operations under 17 SGDs together with other business organisations, which are Global Compact members.
