United Nations Global Compact's support

Georg KELL

Executive Director of the UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL COMPACT was the guest of honour at the 2008 GlobalCCU Forum held at Campus Veolia and the Sorbonne.

"I welcome the initiative of Mrs Annick RENAUD COULON to organize the first worldwide Forum on Corporate Universities. It is my hope that this Forum makes a major contribution to spreading knowledge of the Global Compact and its mission to corporate universities where thousands of employees are trained every year. The Global Compact Office actively participated in this Forum."

Overview

The United Nations Global Compact asks companies to embrace, support and enact, within their sphere of influence, a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment, and anti-corruption. Following the success of the Leaders’ Summit in Geneva in July 2007, which gathered over 1000 business leaders and top stakeholders from the five continents, Georg Kell presented the United Nations Global Compact at the 2008 GlobalCCU Forum, the philosophy and the 10 principles of the UN Global Compact. Each Global Compact enterprise commits to communicate each year on its progress, the more employees are active in developing the 10 principles, the more progress will be made. He also talked on the contribution he hoped this Global Council of Corporate University Forum would bring to the implementation of the Global Compact principles. GlobalCCU supports the Global Compact. It is enabling the Global Compact to reach thousands of men and women, who can in turn be active in their own communities.
