The aim of the Global Compact International Yearbook is to create a global overview of the achievements of the UN Global Compact. As an independent publication, it offers proactive and in-depth information on key sustainability issues to stakeholders and promotes unique and comprehensive knowledge exchange and learning in the spirit of the Global Compact principles. The publication helps to advance transparency, promotes the sharing of best-practices, and, perhaps most significantly, gives a strong voice to the regional and global actors that are at the heart of the initiative. Therefore, the yearbook includes good practice examples of corporate participants and showcases different approaches to the implementation of the ten principles. In addition, a substantial editorial framework will highlight major trends and issues, globally and regionally, placing the activities of Global Compact participants in a broader context.
