The Carbon Productivity Basecamp, as well as the Map and Tool, have been part of a process to develop insights and content for Project Breakthrough, a platform co-developed by Volans and the UN Global Compact.

On 21 September The UN Global Compact Leaders Summit brought together over 600 international leaders from business, investment groups, civil society, academia, government and the United Nations to accelerate local and global business action to achieve the SDGs.

Covestro CEO, Patrick Thomas, presented at the Summit as part of a session titled “Breaking through”. He presented the concept of Carbon Productivity in relation to Covestro’s corporate strategy in alignment with the SDGs. Patrick Thomas was joined by speakers such as Unilever CEO Paul Polman and Aviva CEO Mark Wilson. You can see the full list of speakers here.

With less than 5,000 days to meet the 17 Global Goals by the 2030 deadline, the Leaders Summit seeks to challenge the status quo and the business-as-usual mindset.
