Overview

The Global Compact Network Australia (GCNA) is the business-led network of the UN Global Compact in Australia. The GCNA brings together Australian signatories of the UN Global Compact, including leading businesses, non-profits and universities, in a business-led platform for learning, dialogue and influence to advance corporate sustainability and the private sector’s contribution to sustainable development.

The GCNA provides a meeting point where organizations can build best practices around sustainability and network with experts both within Australia and globally. Through its activities, the GCNA supports companies’ sustainability efforts and brings the UN Global Compact to life in the Australian context and wherever Australian companies operate. 

The GCNA also engages with government around policy, and in 2015 announced a significant partnership with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade aimed at engaging the private sector in sustainable development.

Since launching in 2009, the GCNA has become one of Australia’s leading corporate sustainability initiatives.

Vision: The GCNA is the leading driver of effective business practices that deliver social, economic and environmental gains.

Mission: We lead, enable and connect business, government and civil society to practically apply the principles of the UN Global Compact.
