Launched in 2007, the Global Compact U.S. Network is a forum designed to bring U.S.-based signatory companies (and U.S.-based units of foreign companies) together with stakeholders from the public sector, civil society, labour, academia and other spheres in order to advance the values and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact. The U.S. Network is governed by a U.S. Steering Committee. With respect to programming, the U.S. Network convenes at least one theme-based working symposium each year. These multi-stakeholder forums bring together leading corporate sustainability practitioners, NGOs, and other issue experts for deep discussion and the sharing of best and emerging practices. The Network also offers webinars and other engagement opportunities. Recent working symposiums have focused on topics such as “CSR and the Boardroom”; “CSR and Public Policy”; “Water Sustainability”; “Managing Climate Risks and Opportunities”, “Business and Human Rights”; and “The Business Value of Women’s Empowerment”.
Mission Statement: The mission of the US Network is to support the advancement and implementation of the ten Global Compact principles through dialogue, the exchange of information, and the expansion of US signatories to the UN Global Compact.
