(New York, 20 September 2006) - The UN Global Compact presents a unique and potentially powerful platform for participating companies to demonstrate true leadership with respect to corporate citizenship strategy and implementation.
To help companies maximize their engagement in the Global Compact – and, therefore, attain the greatest strategic benefits – the Global Compact Office has developed a Leadership Template, which outlines a comprehensive approach grouped into five categories: Internalization; Leveraging Global Supply Chain and UNGC Local Networks; Advocacy and Awareness; Partnerships and Collective Action; and Philanthropy.
“Many companies have asked us to suggest an outline for engagement that will help them realize their aspirations related to responsible corporate citizenship”, said Georg Kell, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact. “The Leadership Template is an answer to that request and should go a long way in assisting companies in their strategic leadership efforts, while also helping to build the capacities and resources of the Global Compact”.
