To participate in the Global Compact, an organisation must prepare a Letter of Commitment from the Chief Executive Officer (and endorsed by the board) to the UN Secretary-General expressing support for the Global Compact and its principles.

The Global Compact provides templates that organisations may use for this letter:

  • For business participants – Download PDF
  • For non-business participants – Download PDF

The organisation must then complete the Online Application Form and upload a digital copy of the Letter of Commitment:

Once a signatory to the UN Global Compact, organisations are expected to:

  • publicly advocate the Global Compact and its principles via communications vehicles such as press releases, speeches, etc.; and
