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.



The architecture of a sustainable future

To create a sustainable future, we first have to be able to envision a future that is radically different from the world we know today. That means that the first step for any organization wanting to “become sustainable” is to have a vision of what its activities, products, or services would look like if it were, in fact, “sustainable” – not just in terms of the impacts and dependencies on the people and resources a company requires, but also with regard to the broader environmental and societal impacts of its activities.
