In the next five years, the Global Compact Network Tanzania aims for at least 150 large and medium-sized businesses in Tanzania to have improved their sustainability by integrating the Ten Principles into their business strategies. In turn, this will contribute to strengthening the local economy, improving the livelihoods of Tanzanians and reducing negative impacts on the environment.

Objectives:

  1. For businesses to operate sustainably and responsibly, resulting in improved corporate socio-environmental performance and an enhanced local economy.
  2. For businesses to benefit from integrating the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles through improved reputation and recognition (both locally and internationally), ultimately increasing profit and access to global markets.

Mission: Our mission is to champion a coordinated effort in supporting business and non-business entities to align their strategies and operations with the internationally recognized Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact.

Vision: Contribute to the creation of a responsible and ethical society dedicated to sustainable use of natural resources, improving the livelihood of citizens and equitable economic growth.
