The Global Compact Local Network was launched in Bangladesh on 26th January 2009, at a ceremony jointly organized by the Bangladesh Enterprise Institute (BEI), the CSR Centre, and the UNDP Dhaka office.

The event brought together roughly 150 representatives of business, government and civil society, including the 41 existing Global Compact participants from Bangladesh. The launch was followed by a roundtable discussion to further set the stage for CSR efforts in Bangladesh.

Since its launch the Global Compact Network Bangladesh has beene able to build awareness on Global Compact and the issue of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) not only among the signatories but also among the leading business houses and companies doing business in Bangladesh.
