The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere. Endorsed by chief executives, the Global Compact is a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices, offering participants a wide spectrum of workstreams, management tools and resources — all designed to help advance sustainable business models and markets. The UN Global Compact Annual Review is a comprehensive annual study that assesses how – and to what extent – companies worldwide are implementing the ten principles; taking action in support of broader UN goals and issues; and engaging with the Global Compact locally and globally. At the centre of the review are the findings from the Annual Global Compact Implementation Survey, an annual, anonymous online survey of Global Compact participants worldwide, conducted to take stock of environmental and social performance and identify trends and developments related to corporate sustainability issues.



Driving corporate sustainabilty performance and leadership

Since 2000, the United Nations Global Compact has called on companies to strategically address environmental, social and governance issues in their operations, in the belief that responsible business actions can underpin economies with core values that are essential for building trust in markets, driving growth and spurring development. For a decade, leaders around the globe have responded to our message and committed to advance principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption into business practices. Today, the Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, with over 8,000 signatories – 6,000 corporate and 2,000 non-business stakeholders – in 140 countries.
