What is the UN Global Compact
The UN Global Compact is a global framework proposed by Kofi Annan (Secretary-General of the United Nations at the time) in 1999 at the World Economic Forum (Davos Conference) held in Davos, Switzerland, and launched in 2000, for realizing sustainable growth. Various organizations, centered on corporations, are expected to act as good corporate citizens by demonstrating responsible and creative leadership.
