Mission and Vision
During the Inter-American Development Bank’s 7th International CSR Conference held in Uruguay in early December 2009, a group of companies and organizations announced their intention to establish the Global Compact Network Uruguay. On 29 December, a Working Group was created with the support and participation of the local United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) office, and the Local Network was officially launched in August 2010. The network is managed by a ten-member board and a six-member Steering Committee. UNDP has a seat on the Board and Steering Committee.
• Promote the UN Global Compact and its principles in Uruguay;
• Facilitate the implementation of the Global Compact ten principles;
• Create opportunities for developing multi-stakeholder actions aligned with the UN Global Compact principles and other UN initiatives.
