Global Compact

Russian business is beginning to actively take part in global initiatives that encourage socially responsible business, primarily though the UN Global Compact (UNGC). UN Global Compact пїЅ this is an initiative that encourages companies to abide by the ten universal principles of the GC , in the spheres of human rights, workersпїЅ rights, environmentalism and anti-corruption. General Secretary Kofi Annan first advanced the idea of the Global Compact initiative at the World Economic Forum at Davos (Switzerland) on the 31st January 1999. Officially, Global Compact was formed at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York in July 2000. Since that time, Global Compact, which is now made up of thousands of participants from over 100 countries, has become the largest and most important corporate citizenship and sustainability initiative in the world. At the beginning of 2009, more than 6,000 companies from all over the world responded to the call for the development of a more stable and open global economy.

In 2008, participants of the Global Compact Network Russia (UNGC, Russia) carried out important structural and organizational changes, aimed to increase the effectiveness of the Russian local networkпїЅs activities. On April 10th, 2008, in Moscow, more than 30 senior representatives of Russian companies met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, and declared their intention of starting a Russian local network of the UNGC,Russia. "I welcome todayпїЅs formation of the Russian Local Network as a sign that the business community of Russia, one of the largest economies in the world, is ready to fully support the universal values of the United Nations,пїЅ explained Ban Ki-moon. There was an annual general meeting of participants of the UNGC, Russia on December 17th, 2008. The meeting ratified the пїЅStatues of the UNGC, RussiaпїЅ and пїЅPriority Aims and Objectives of the UNGC, Russia in 2009-11пїЅ and elected the Steering Committee of the UNGC, Russia for 2009. The Steering Committee of the UNGC, Russia elected the chairman of the UNGC, Russia for 2009 and in January 2009 signed memorandum about the mutual understanding between the UNGC, Russia and the Global Compact office in New York.
