Choose your 2018 Engagement Tier: Will your Company Become a Participant or Signatory?

Starting in January 2018, the UN Global Compact will offer two distinct engagement tiers to suit your company’s needs: Participant or Signatory. In order to engage in either tier and remain an active Participant or Signatory of the UN Global Compact, we ask larger companies to make a required annual financial contribution, based on their company’s annual gross revenue/sales.

Join Forces to Create a Better World for All

Many of the UN Global Compact’s success stories come from the effective partnerships we’ve helped participants establish. For example, partnerships helped make platforms, such as Caring for Climate, the CEO Water Mandate, the Women’s Empowerment Principles and Business for Peace, into models for translating global frameworks into local action across sectors. These partnerships demonstrate the great potential of working together to drive innovation and impact, advance the sustainable development agenda and address other major global challenges.

Building the Business of Tomorrow

Through innovation and leadership, the UN Global Compact is paving the way to the future we want by working with companies, investors and business schools.
