About the product
Since its launch in July 2000, the Global Compact has grown to become the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. Its more than 6,000 business participants in nearly 140 countries strive to implement universal principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anticorruption. Now, the first Global Compact International Yearbook highlights major issues, among them climate change, water and ethics in the time of crisis. By doing so, business, as a primary agent driving globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
