Since 2000, corporate sustainability has increasingly entered mainstream decision-making. A vanguard of companies in all key markets is taking action, helped by UN Global Compact activities at both the international and local level.

All Global Compact operations, programmes and activities are made possible by voluntary contributions from Governments to the UN Global Compact Trust Fund and from business and the private sector to the Foundation for the Global Compact.
