The Japanese Global Compact Local Network (GC-JN) was officially launched on 21
December 2003, under the stewardship of the United Nations Information Center (UNIC) in Tokyo. In
April 2008 GC-JN changed its organizational structure into an independent business-led network. A
Local Network Board was established to provide strategic direction. With the continued support of
UNIC, GC-JN functions as a dynamic learning platform in providing Japanese companies with the
opportunity to share their corporate responsibility practices.
Companies and other stakeholders that are interested in participating in the network are
asked to contact GC-JN directly.
