SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT THROUGH TRANSFORMATIVE LEADERSHIP

About Us

The Global CEO Alliance Foundation (GCEOA) is a community of business leaders with one call to action – to steer sustainable economic transformation through collaboration and collective effort of the private sector, in driving global change and impact.

We are guided by the belief in Sustainability Shared, an open system that enables organizations to place both people and planet at the heart of the economic system. It is built around a long-term vision of collaboration and collective effort – of sharing and access to, information, best practices, tools and resources - toward sustainable development, where value creation is measured through economic, environmental, and social impact.

Globally, the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the 193-member states of the United Nations is a monumental call to action. The 2030 Agenda identified a set of 17 goals, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that provide countries with global development priorities towards the eradication of poverty, protection of the planet, and the promotion of prosperity for all.

In New York State, and specifically the Greater Binghamton area, our mission is to engage all key stakeholders and prompt involvement of organizations from every sector to contribute towards sustainable development. The GCEOA believes that when people and organizations are well informed on the various aspects of sustainability – and are technologically well equipped to access information – they can make smarter decisions and take better actions toward sustainable development. The need for a more collaborative, systematic, and well-informed response is needed now more than ever. County sustainability goals support the people of the area, regional infrastructure, industrial economics, reduce the impact of waste and improve the quality of life for the region.
