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.



The case for a clean revolution

By 2050, our planet will be home to 9 billion people. The world’s middle class will reach 4 billion; by 2020, 50 percent of China’s population will be middle class. The world has also become increasingly urban: In 1800, only 2 percent of the world’s population was urban. Today, half of the world’s people are living in towns and cities, with 180,000 people added to the urban population each day.
