A Global Movement

Discover Ways to Engage

Our mission is to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. To end extreme poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change, we need your company to join our global movement.

Globally and on the ground in over 60 Local Networks, the UN Global Compact guides you throughout your sustainability journey by enabling your company to operate responsibly, take bold actions, and be the voice of responsible business. We help you cut through the complexity along the way by enabling your company to build trust and transparency, achieve your sustainability objectives and help shape the world’s sustainability agenda. We have strengthened and tailored our opportunities for businesses through two distinct engagement levels to suit your company’s needs: Participant or Signatory.

What is a Participant?

Participants actively engage with the UN Global Compact at the global level, and at their national or regional level. The Participant level is ideal for leaders, but also for learners, looking to accelerate their sustainability efforts and scale up their impact across the globe.

To engage as a Participant, businesses of all sizes must make a required yearly financial contribution, based on their annual gross sales or revenue. For more information, contact your regional Participant Engagement Manager.

What is a Signatory?

Signatories actively engage with the UN Global Compact at their national or regional level. At the Signatory level, businesses with revenue over USD 50 million must make a required annual financial contribution, based on their annual gross sales or revenue.

The voluntary nature of financial contributions to the global initiative is preserved for smaller businesses: Signatories with annual gross sales or revenue less than USD 50 million are asked only to make a financial contribution if they wish to fully engage with the Local Network in their country. For more information, contact your regional Participant Engagement Manager.
