UN Internalization of the Ten Principles


The Global Compact Office is acting as a catalyst, information provider and knowledge broker for institutional reform within the UN.  The Organization is currently in the process of internalizing the ten principles in

•    procurement practices;
•    investment management and pension fund policies;
•    facilities and human resource management. 

Four working groups have been established to move ideas forward in these key areas and an Advisory Group is overseeing the process.  The work undertaken thus far is only the beginning of an organizational change process that will likely take many years. It will require the active involvement all stakeholders, including member States, OAHs, staff, other UN departments and other organizations of the UN system. 
Please contact Ms. Melissa Powell (powell1@un.org) for more information.
