A win-win for business and society

The connection between the bottom-line and a company's environmental, social and governance practices is becoming clear.

How will I benefit?

It’s good for business. Corporate and organizational success requires stable economies and healthy, skilled and educated workers, among other factors. And sustainable companies experience increased brand trust and investor support.

It’s good for society – and business really can make a difference. Companies offer fresh ideas and scalable solutions to society’s challenges – exactly what we need to create a better world. More than 8,000 business participants and 4,000 non-business participants in the UN Global Compact are already changing the world. They’re helping alleviate extreme poverty, address labour issues, reduce environmental risks around the globe, and more. See who is involved.
