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.



Certification brings positive impacts and better traceability to business

Eco-labels and other sustainability marks on products are the way that most people experience certification. They are a window into production practices that might have taken place thousands of miles away – the connection between a forester in Brazil and a new piece of furniture; or a fishery in the North Atlantic and a meal of fish and chips; or a tea picker in Kenya and a morning beverage. But it is not only consumers who depend on labels to make informed decisions, it is also retailers and many other participants in the supply chain who are looking to improve their performance.
