The 2017 edition of the Global Compact International Yearbook, titled “Sustainability in Troubled Times,” was officially recognized as a UN flagship publication at the conference on “Public–Private Partnerships for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” (Geneva, April 10 – 13, 2018). Dr. Elmer Lenzen, Chair of the macondo foundation, which is the patron of the Global Goals Yearbook, emphasized in his acceptance speech the significant role that the partnerships between the United Nations and the private sector must play to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda.

Lenzen explained: “Asymmetric alliances and asymmetric partnerships have an enormous potential for both the UN as well as the private sector. But how do they work? Who are the stakeholders? And what does this mean for the UN system and its models for partnership?” These questions and many best practices given in response form the editorial concept of the Global Goals Yearbook, which follows nine successful editions of the Global Compact International Yearbook. There were 305 participants from all over the world who attended the conference, which took place in the Palais de Nations of the UN.

The conference was hosted and chaired by the UN Joint Inspection Unit (JIU) and co-organized by the World Association for Sustainable Development. Petru Dumitriu, Inspector of the JIU and Co-chair of the conference, said to those gathered: “We appreciate wholeheartedly the knowledge and enthusiasm you brought to our United Nations house as well as your understanding of, and commitment to, the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” The conference illustrated the kinds of representation that the UN is striving for: equitable geographical representation, multistakeholder participation (from intergovernmental bodies, the private sector, academia, civil society organizations), gender balance, intergenerational dialogue, etc.

From that perspective, the conference evaluated the partnerships between the UN and the private sector in the context of the 2030 Agenda. Participants explored different means to improve contributions from the private sector toward the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. They also sought ways to generate interest within the private sector to engage in partnerships with UN organizations as well as to improve efficiency in their use of resources.

The Global Compact International Yearbook 2016 has won a silver medal at the prestigious 10th Axiom Business Book Awards. The joint publication of macondo publishing and United Nations Publications finished second in the category “Philantrophy/Nonprofit/Sustainability” behind Greenleaf Publishing.

Sustainable innovation is the key topic that the Global Compact International Yearbook 2016 is highlighting with to meet the needs of the Sustainable Development Goals. “Business must fit into planetary boundaries. This probably will not work using traditional business models. That is why we need new, fresh ideas. We need change, even when it happens in a rough, disruptive way. And the earlier, the better,” says Dr. Elmer Lenzen, publisher of the Yearbook.

An additional highlight are interviews with three of the most famous and committed actors in Hollywood: Robert Redford, Angelina Jolie, and Sigourney Weaver discuss their offscreen engagements in individual, extensive interviews. Redford, for example, offers his personal perspective on climate change and also tells us about his ecological work, whereby Jolie gives us a personal insight into her work with refugees and the United Nations.

Finally, more than 30 different companies participated in the Yearbook by offering their good practice examples and demonstrating how they implement the SDGs into praxis. “Business success demands that business leaders embrace the future and keep learning and growing,” says Axiom Award founder, Jerrold Jenkins. “This year’s award-winning books offer not only great ideas, but an imperative to create change.”

All medal-winning books represent the Axiom philosophy “Success through knowledge” by facilitating a certain kind of information to companies and business persons. The Axiom Business Book Awards have the intention of increasing the recognition of exemplary business books. Knowing that business people are an information-hungry part of the population, Axiom offers these awards to inform the business community about certain business books and their creators in order to inspire business people and to give them the possibilities of improving their careers and businesses.

This year’s medals went to publishers and authors from 17 different US states, two provinces in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, and Switzerland. Within the group of American medal winners, there were a blend of established New York publishers, university presses, and independent publishers of all sizes.

This is already the second award for the Global Compact International Yearbook. Last year’s 2015 edition won a bronze medal at the Independent Publisher Book Award.

The latest edition of the Global Compact International Yearbook 2015, with Leonardo DiCaprio as one of its prominent authors, has won the bronze medal at the 20th Independent Publisher Book Awards. The publishers macondo publishing and United Nations Publications finished third in the category “Finance/Investment/Economics” behind Stanford University Press.

“The award is a big plaudit and underlines the quality and work of the entire team,” says Dr. Elmer Lenzen, Chair and Editor-in-Chief of macondo publishing. “In addition to the unique honor and the more than 400,000 editions of the Global Compact Yearbook distributed globally, this award serves as an additional recommendation from the US book market.”

Independent publishing has always been a voice for deserving causes, and the medal-winning books in this year’s Independent Publisher Book Awards highlight many of today’s pressing issues, including the long struggle for women’s equality. The results of the 20th annual awards ceremony are a testament to the significant contributions that women are making in publishing today.

As gold medalist Peter Freed writes in the preface of Prime: Reflections on Time and Beauty, his photo-essay book featuring the portraits and words of 130 women, “Women are born storytellers gathering information and insights the way a bee gathers pollen, totally immersed and coated in their experiences.” The experiences portrayed in the array of award-winning books are both diverse and nuanced, showing the range of these powerful storytellers.

The Independent Publisher Book Awards were launched in 1996 and are conducted each year to honor the year’s best independently published books, offering an alternative to “the big five” conglomerated media publishers. Thanks to small presses, university presses, and self-publishing services that give experimental and entrepreneurial authors a platform, the independent publisher universe is rapidly expanding.

The medal-winning books were celebrated on May 10, 2016, during the annual BookExpo America publishing convention in Chicago, where gold, silver, and bronze medallions were awarded. This year’s contest drew nearly 5,000 entries, with winning medalists in 42 US states plus DC, six Canadian provinces, and nine countries overseas.
