THREE MEANINGFUL WAYS THE UN GLOBAL COMPACT CAN HELP YOUR COMPANY.
Launched in 2000 as a special initiative of the UN Secretary-General, the UN Global Compact provides a framework for developing a more sustainable and responsible business.
Today, the UN Global Compact is the largest corporate sustainability initiative in the world, with more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 non-business signatories based in over 160 countries, and more than60 Local Networks. It is a call to companies everywhere to align their operations and strategies with Ten universally accepted Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
Our mission is to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. With easy access to authoritative guidance, training, tools, and support, along with global reach and multi stakeholder connections, the UN Global Compact enables businesses to achieve their sustainability objectives.
The UN Global Compact is unparalleled in its ability to unite companies with every stakeholder group working to advance sustainable development, including Governments, civil society, investors, academia, and the United Nations. Together, through bold actions and collaboration between all sectors of society, we can end extreme poverty and hunger, fight inequalities and address climate change, ensuring no one is left behind.
As the Local Network of the UN Global Compact, the Global Compact Network Nigeria offers immense value to a business ecosystem that is finally beginning to embrace the concept of sustainable business across board. We help businesses set and achieve key sustainability objectives, which in turn enables them to build trust internally with investors and stakeholders, and gives them leverage to help define leadership, and provide inspiration to a broader audience across Africa, and the world at large.
