Apply for the Partnership for Sustainability Award 2023!


Partnership for Sustainability Award is an annual international campaign in which the UN Global Compact Ukraine celebrates the best projects implemented in partnership between business, government, and civil society and aimed at achieving Sustainable Development Goals, protecting the environment, solving social challenges, and promoting peace.

The award was founded in 2018. Its goal is to unite stakeholders around Global Goal 17 — “Partnership for Goals”. The award is held annually. The exception was in 2022, the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Today, we all realize the value of partnership as never before. Ukraine has confronted Russian aggression, just as the world has united to help Ukrainians withstand the struggle.

The campaign Partnership for Sustainability Award is international. In past years the award united over 300 representatives from Ukraine, Germany, Poland, North Macedonia, Georgia, and Turkey. The international community is doing a lot to support Ukrainians today, and UNGC Ukraine wants to recognize the best practices.
