Global Compact LEAD is a platform for the implementation of the Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership that was launched at the Global Compact Leaders Summit in June 2010.
The Blueprint is a new model of leadership within the Global Compact, which has been designed to inspire advanced performers to reach the next level of sustainability performance. It identifies criteria for leadership practice in three distinct but overlapping dimensions: (i) integrating the ten principles into strategies and operations; (ii) taking action in support of broader UN goals and issues; and (iii) engaging with the UN Global Compact; as well as cross-cutting components.
To join Global Compact LEAD, companies must commit to implementing the Blueprint and include in their Communication on Progress a description of progress made in this regard. Membership Criteria.
