What is the Global Compact?

The Global Compact is a voluntary initiative whereby signatory companies and organizations act as upstanding members of society by demonstrating responsible and creative leadership, participating in the creation of a global framework for achieving sustainable growth. This ongoing initiative was first proposed by Kofi Annan, then Secretary-General of the United Nations, at the World Economic Forum (Davos Forum) in 1999. It consists of ten principles across four areas: of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.
