About UN Global Compact

UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, a call to companies to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. 

By committing to sustainability, business can take shared responsibility for achieving a better world.

Our Mission

At the UN Global Compact, we believe it’s possible to create a sustainable and inclusive global economy that delivers lasting benefits to people, communities and markets. That’s our vision.

To make this happen, the UN Global Compact supports companies to:

  1. Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption; and
  2. Take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the forthcoming UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.

We provide a principle-based framework, best practices, resources and networking events that have revolutionized how companies do business responsibly and keep commitments to society. By catalyzing action, partnerships and collaboration, we make transforming the world possible – and achievable – for organizations large and small, anywhere around the globe.

As a voluntary initiative, the Global Compact seeks wide participation from a diverse group of businesses and other organisations. Find out more on how to participate in the UN Global Compact or visit the UNGC website for more information.

Signatories of the UN Global Compact are also eligible to register as participants in the local network. Learn how to join Global Compact Network Romania.
