What is the UN Global Compact?

The UN Global Compact brings together companies, organizations, UN agencies, the world of work and civil society around ten universally accepted principles to build more stable and inclusive societies.
The Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative with more than 14,000 participants in 170 countries, and is a voluntary framework, an international repository, a platform for action and exchange.
As the official local relay in France, the Global Compact France brings together more than 1,200 companies and nearly 100 non-profit organizations. The Global Compact France offers to all types of companies and non-profit organizations a stimulating exchange place to initiate, develop and share their approaches to social responsibility.
The Global Compact is the starting point for any organization seeking to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDOs) adopted in September 2015 by the UN. These goals offer a universal agenda to be achieved in order to build a better world. They require a multiplication of corporate commitments, causing profound changes in both companies and markets, thus demonstrating that sustainability and value creation go hand in hand.
