◆Overview of the United Nations Global Compact

The UNGC was first announced by the then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan in an address to The World Economic Forum on January 31, 1999, and was officially launched at UN Headquarters in New York on July 26, 2000. It is a worldwide initiative to encourage businesses and entities to take leadership in a responsible and creative manner, and to demonstrate good corporate citizenship in order to realize sustainable growth.
