The UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact is a United Nations initiative encouraging businesses worldwide to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. The Compact also supports companies taking strategic actions towards broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Launched in 2000, the UN Global Compact now has more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 nonbusiness signatories across 160 countries.

Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact

Human Rights

  1. Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.
  2. Businesses should make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

Labor

  1. Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
  2. Businesses should support the elimination of all forms of forced and compulsory labor.
  3. Businesses should support the effective abolition of child labor.
  4. Businesses should support the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

Environment

  1. Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
  2. Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
  3. Businesses should encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

Anti-Corruption
