About Cdl-gcns Young Sdg Leaders Award

Sustainability has become a mainstream business agenda. The global challenges such as poverty, climate change, biodiversity loss and gender inequality, can be tackled through greater action by businesses, accelerating the progress to a more sustainable world where no one is left behind. Studies show that responsible businesses committed to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) integration generally outperform those that are lagging in climate actions and sustainability practices.

We believe that the youths today can shape the world of tomorrow by driving innovative business solutions and demand for responsible products.

Are you aspiring to drive change in our society and accelerate businesses’ commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? If you believe that businesses can do good for the community and the environment while doing well financially, the CDL-GCNS Young SDG Leaders Awards 2020 is for you!

Jointly organised by City Developments Limited (CDL) and Global Compact Network Singapore (GCNS), this annual case competition offers young people a platform to champion sustainable development and SDG integration into business for positive change.

Previously known as the CDL-GCNS Young CSR Leaders Award, the competition has nurtured over 1,800 young leaders since inception in 2011. By aligning with the global goals for sustainable development, the Award seeks to educate and empower young leaders with SDG knowledge and skills, while inspiring companies in Singapore to take concrete actions for the SDGs.
