About the product
Over the last several years, the United Nations has become a trailblazer in promoting corporate responsibility. In the 11 years since its launch, the United Nations Global Compact has been at the forefront of the UN’s effort to make the private sector a critical actor in advancing sustainability, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in the 2011 edition of the Global Compact International Yearbook. This publication offers insights on political as well as sustainability issues. Exemplary entrepreneurial commitments can foster and create incentives for other companies. To guide companies along this road, they need a blueprint for corporate sustainability. This is the focal topic of the new Global Compact International Yearbook.
