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.

Good practices: Cotton made in Africa, world cocoa foundation, sustainable energy Africa

Cotton made in Africa works on the principles of a social business. That means the initiative operates in accordance with sound business methods, except that it does not aim to maximize the profits of individuals, but rather to improve the conditions of life of a large number of African cotton farmers. In order to do that, it is building an alliance of international retail companies that has targeted demand in the global market for sustainably produced cotton and that uses this material in its products. Cotton made in Africa acts in accordance with the rules of the market, avoiding subsidies or interventions in the system of world market prices, which are dependent on supply and demand, as are the prices of practically all raw materials.
