Recognizing the importance of local knowledge and ownership of issues related to peace, Business for Peace has adopted a locally-driven approach with Global Compact Local Networks playing a central role.
As the first UN Global Compact platform that Local Networks can join through a public commitment, Business for Peace invites companies to work alongside participating Local Networks to advance peace in the following countries: Canada, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Israel, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Poland, Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Turkey, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and Ukraine.
Local Networks advance the Business for Peace agenda through learning exchanges,
information sharing, working groups, and by facilitating partnerships and dialogues that tackle issues specific to local contexts. There is a range of engagement opportunities and events available to companies worldwide.
