Use by participants of the "We Support the Global Compact" logo (hereinafter the "Endorser logo") is encouraged as a way to promote their commitment to the initiative and raise awareness of the United Nations Global Compact. It can be used, for example, on corporate websites and pertinent printed materials. Please note, however, that every use of a Global Compact logo — except the contextualized version of the logo for use in COPs, which may be downloaded and used in a COP without prior permission — requires permission in advance from the Global Compact Office.
