Grant Thornton global CEO appointed as chair for IMPACT2030

Grant Thornton global CEO Peter Bodin has been appointed as IMPACT2030’s chair of the board.

IMPACT 2030 is private sector led coalition which aims to help the United Nations (UN) to achieve their Sustainable Development Goals. The goals focus is on ending poverty and protecting the planet.

The coalition was founded in response to a UN resolution that called upon nations to engage with the private sector through the expansion of corporate volunteering and employee volunteer activities.

Bodin commented: “I’m extremely excited and honoured to join IMPACT2030 as chair of the board. I’ve watched the IMPACT2030 initiative for some time and I have been impressed with the work that the organisation has done to advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

“After spending 30 years in business, I truly believe that the private sector has a unique opportunity and genuine responsibility to help society make these goals a reality. People are the private sector’s most valuable asset and by focusing their collective energy on the Sustainable Development Goals, we can help wider society make true progress towards a better and more sustainable future for all.”

Bodin takes over as chair from IMPACT2030 co-founder Grady Lee, who will stay on as vice chair.
