The United Nations Global Compact is a global platform for business and non-business entities to proactively network and engage in areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. Participation in the UN Global Compact is a widely visible commitment to the implementation, disclosure, and promotion of its ten universal principles.

Local Networks, such as the UK Network, are clusters of UN Global Compact Participants and Signatories who come together to advance the UN Global Compact and its principles within a particular geographic context. Our role is to help organisations engage in the UN Global Compact with respect to implementation of the Ten Principles, and create opportunities for multi-stakeholder engagement and collective action.
