Together, we can create a better future: The UN Global Compact
Our world faces many challenges. Population growth and economic development are creating risks for global health and the environment. Many countries are confronted by political challenges, inequality and social unrest. Globalisation means effects in one location are rapidly felt in others.
Socially responsible businesses are joining governments, non-profit organisations and communities to meet these challenges. They are working to end extreme poverty and inequality, and protect our planet.
