What is the UN Global Compact?

Global Compact is an international agreement launched by the United Nations in 2000 to encourage companies to commit to sustainable development. The Compact has ten universally-accepted principles which focus on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. These principles are to be integrated and applied to the company’s operations, management and strategy.
