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.



Corporate responsibilities in the context of the post-2015 sustainable development agenda

The shared understanding of a majority of scientists, representatives of civil society, and multilateral institutions as well as of a growing number of enlightened leaders from the private sector is clear: Global economic, social, and environmental systems are on an unsustainable trajectory. Phenomena such as climate change, extreme weather events, rising sea levels, acidification of marine ecosystems, loss of biological diversity, and other environmental changes are likely to have negative impacts on the development opportunities and choices of future generations. The consumption of nonrenewable resources continues to be much higher than the substitution through renewable resources.
