Please see the Compact’s site:
The UN Global Compact (UN GC) – the largest United Nations initiative in the area of corporate social responsibility and sustainable development – has celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2015 under the theme of Business as a Force for Good.
The mission of the Global Compact – integration in its activities throughout the world of ten principles in the area of human rights, labor relations, environment and fighting corruption for the purposes of sustainable and equitable socio-economic development.
The inclusion of UN GC principles in the corporate values system and public commitment to their application in practice are widely recognized indicators of responsible business practices and good reputation, necessary to enter the international level of activities and partnerships. In joining the Global Compact, its participants receive new opportunities for the development of their businesses and achieve personal professional goals.
The Global Compact was established so that business companies throughout the world were able not only to fully understand the need to follow the ten principles critical for achieving sustainable future, but also to learn about presenting their successes and achievements in this area before the national and world communities.
