Business as a force for good.

By committing to sustainability, business can take shared responsibility for achieving a better world.

Our Mission

At the UN Global Compact, we aim to mobilize a global movement of sustainable companies and stakeholders to create the world we want. That’s our vision.

To make this happen, the UN Global Compact supports companies to:

  1. Do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption; and
  2. Take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals, with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation.

View the Ten Principles

Inspiring, guiding and catalyzing change

We provide a principle-based framework, best practices, resources and networking events that have revolutionized how companies do business responsibly and keep commitments to society. By catalyzing action, partnerships and collaboration, we make transforming the world possible – and achievable – for organizations large and small, anywhere around the globe.

Our Strategy

Business achieving greater good

We’re proud of the success stories we’ve helped establish. UN Global Compact participants across industries are changing the way they operate to implement responsible practices and developing innovative solutions to address poverty and inequality, and support education, health and peace, to name just a few areas.
