The UN Global Compact invites companies to embrace, support and enact within their sphere of influence, a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment, and anti-corruption.
The UN Global Compact was launched in July 2000 to establish an open partnership between the private sector and the international community.

By doing so, the business world, are capable of contributing positively to a more sustainable and inclusive global economy benefitting societies as well as safeguarding the environment.
The UN Global Compact is not a regulatory instrument, but rather a voluntarily initiatives that relies on public accountability, transparency and disclosure to complement regulation and to provide space for innovation.
