The UN Global Compact (UNGC) is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary agent driving globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
The aim of the Global Compact International Yearbook is to create a global overview of the achievements of the UNGC. The book offers proactive and in-depth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders around the world and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles. Thus the publication helps to advance transparency, promotes the sharing of best-practices, and, perhaps most significantly, gives a strong voice to the regional and global actors that are at the heart of the initiative.
Therefore it include best-practice examples of corporate participants and showcase different approaches to the implementation of the ten principles. In addition, a substantial editorial framework will highlight major trends and issues, globally and regionally, placing your activities as Global Compact participants in a broader context.
