Basic Online COP Template

This template was designed to guide smaller and less experienced companies in their communication on progress by offering an easy-to-use web-based template. To fill out the Basic COP Online Template, please login to the Global Compact website and go to the COP submission page.


Using the Basic COP Template has several benefits. First, the template offers a number of examples for every issue area and reporting element, making it a reference for implementation as well as for reporting. Second, it allows participants to create their COP during the submission process. It is not necessary to create and format a PDF file, as the information will be directly introduced into the template. Third, it allows both users and stakeholders to compare different COPs and track progress. A preview of the Basic COP Template is available in a variety of languages.
