The aim of the Global Compact International Yearbook is to create a global overview of the achievements of the UN Global Compact (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. Core issues of the 2013 edition include Stakeholder Management, Integrated Reporting, CSR in Africa, and Climate Chance.



What business has to gain from engaging in international climate policy

Society, including business, works best when we jointly accept a challenge. One only needs to think of the huge strides that governments and businesses – supported by the public – made once nations had set themselves the task of landing a man on the moon. At the beginning of the “space race,” it was not even clear that this technological challenge could be met. Preventing catastrophic climate change will require a similar approach. Only when every facet of society – including government and business – sets the collective goal of ensuring our children inherit a safe planet will there be nothing to stop us.
