About the product
Looking back at the past 10 years, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) has left its mark in a variety of ways, helping shape the conversation about corporate responsibility and diffusing the concept of a principle-based approach to doing business across the globe. Global Compact has grown significantly, both in terms of the number of participants and their engagement. With only a handful of companies and NGOs met in 2000, today more than 7,300 business and non-business participants are part of the initiative. This second edition of the Yearbook overviews the UNGC milestones over the past decade, achievements in the areas of biodiversity, corporate citizenship, MDGs, tells news from around the world and demonstrates best practices.
