Mission and Vision
The UN Global Compact was officially introduced in Russia in November2001, and the Global Compact Network Russia was launched in December2008. The General Assembly, the Local Network’s highest governance body, defines the network’s priorities and approves its annual reports and plans. The network operates via a Steering Committee, which is composed of nine participants: three permanent members (representatives of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Ministry of Economic Development),one non-governmental organization, and five private sector participants elected by the General Assembly. The Chairperson of the Steering Committee is elected by the Steering Committee and officially represents the network. The Chairperson has two deputies from the Steering Committee: one from RSPP and another from UNDP. The Secretariat, the network’s executive body, is hosted by the UNDP Project Support Office in Russia and sponsored by network participants. The Secretariat operates according to UNDP rules and regulations.
