On the basis of its ten universal principles, it pursues a vision for an inclusive and sustainable global economy for the benefit of all people, communities and markets. These ten principles include human rights, labor standards, environmental protection and fighting corruption.
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) was the first – and for a long time the only – economic partner to pick up this initiative. Since then over 13,000 companies and organizations from civil society, politics and the scientific community in 170 countries have joined the pact.
The initiative is not a certifiable standard; instead, it considers itself an open forum to initiate processes for change and to share ideas. The national networks in which participants work together to implement the pact address specific problem-solving solutions. You can find all of the information on the UN Global Compact here >>>
