Partnernieuws Global Compact Netwerk Nederland

Long-term business success matters – and so do your workers, communities and the planet. The UN Global Compact helps you do business right for all. 20 Years ago then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan proposed to the business leaders of the world to initiate a Global Compact of shared values and principles to give a human face to the global market. Today, with 11.000+ companies, 3.000+ non-business participants, and 68 Local Networks we are the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.

We strive to mobilize global and local movements of sustainable companies and stakeholders with the aim of improving the lives of current and future generations. Guided by the Ten Principles and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals we support companies and other organizations in understanding what responsible business means and provide guidance to translate their sustainability commitments into action. We stimulate and facilitate the creation of local connections paving the way for more meaningful private sector engagement in shaping the sustainability agenda.

No matter how large or small, and regardless of their industry, all companies can contribute to the SDGs. Click here to find more information on how to join the United Nations Global Compact and work together with us in this Decade of Action.

We only have 10 years to achieve the SDGs and we need everyone” – Wineke Haagsma, Board Member Global Compact NL
