Uniting Business to Respond to COVID-19

To help drive responsible corporate action, the United Nations Global Compact is #UnitingBusiness to respond to COVID-19 and providing guidance and support to companies everywhere.

A coordinated international plan involving the business sector will be critical in efforts to support people and companies affected, limit further disruption to the economy and facilitate business continuity for a swift recovery.

Impact of COVID-19 on Sustainability

To help companies navigate the sustainability challenges magnified by COVID-19, the UN Global Compact has compiled a series of COVID-19 Impact Briefs that detail the impact of the pandemic on a range of sustainability issue areas including gender equality, oceans, water stewardship, climate, decent work, sustainable finance, human rights, and anti-corruption. Each brief includes a variety of resources to help you recover better and recover stronger. Learn more today!
