UN Global Compact

Developed by the United Nations (UN), the Global Compact (UNGC) is an innovative corporate responsibility approach that suggests universal principles on sustainability, social responsibility and anti-corruption to the constantly competitive business world to create a common development culture.

As the world’s largest voluntary corporate social responsibility initiative with over 9.000 corporate participants and stakeholders from more than 160 countries since 2000, Global Compact has set out 10 universal principles under these main titles: human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
