Mission and objectives
The Global Compact’s mission is anchored on Ten Principles that are universal timeless, and incontestable. These principles apply to all types of entities, sizes of business, wherever they operate in the world. They are the framework for what a responsible business must build into its ways of working.
The United Nations Global Compact is uniquely positioned to support companies as they align their practices for a sustainable and inclusive future while building back stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic. With the broad-based support of all 193 participant countries of the United Nations General Assembly, the UN Global Compact remains the single, global normative authority and reference point for action and leadership within a growing global corporate sustainability movement.
The material is used as part of the Target Gender Equality accelerator. This initiative has been engaging more than 2.000 companies to date in setting and meeting ambitious targets for gender balance, women’s leadership and equal pay for work of equal value.
