In a letter coordinated by the UN Global Compact Network UK and UK Stakeholders for Sustainable Development (UKSSD), leaders from over 150 businesses, NGOs, research institutions and public figures have urged the Prime Minister to make the Sustainable Development Goals the focus of the country’s recovery from Covid-19.  The letter calls on the government to:
– unite all sectors behind a plan to build a stronger and more resilient economy
– prioritise the most vulnerable in our society and level-up regional and societal inequalities
– build coherent policies for a healthy planet and to aid the transition to net zero.

A number of food businesses are among the signatories, including foodservice giants Compass Group.  Download the letter here.
