The SDG Publishers Compact, developed by the UN and the IPA, features 10 action points that publishers, publishing associations and others can commit to undertaking in order to accelerate progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

Signatories aspire to develop sustainable practices and act as champions of the SDGs, publishing books and journals that will help inform, develop and inspire action.

Action point 2 refers to the commitment signatories have to actively promote and acquire content that advocates for themes represented by the SDGs, such as equality, sustainability, justice and safeguarding and strengthening the environment.

Launched in October 2020, the compact has already attracted more than 100 signatories.
