Global Compact Introduces Resource Package

2004-01-30 

To aid in the understanding and implementation of the Global Compact and its principles, the Global Compact Office – in partnership with its "core" UN agencies – has developed "The Global Compact Resource Package".

The interactive CD-ROM is a tool to help organizations integrate the Global Compact’s principles into their daily operations. It covers the three main areas of the Compact – human rights, labour, and the environment – and includes several sections, including presentations and case studies.

The Resource Package was developed by the International Labour Organisation and the United Nations Environment Programme at the request of the Global Compact Office. The Global Compact's three other "core" agencies also provided input and assistance: the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, and the United Nations Development Programme.

The CD-ROM is available for both PC and Mac. It will be available by the end of November 2003. Please email us at globalcompact@un.org for more information.
