The Young SDG Innovators Program, conducted by the UN Global Compact on a global scale, aims to mobilize future business leaders and makers of difference to rethink traditional business models and uncover new business opportunities. Young professionals working in member companies learn business models based on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and they are encouraged to develop new products and services towards these goals. Zorlu Enerji's young people will participate for the first time in this particular program planned between January-October 2021.
