UN Global Compact Network UK

The UN Global Compact Network UK is part of the world’s largest responsible business initiative connecting UK companies and other organisations in a global movement dedicated to driving sustainable growth. Through an extensive programme of activity, we promote practical sustainability leadership, share knowledge across sectors, and actively shape the responsible business environment to create a world we want to live and do business in.
The United Nations Global Compact’s universally recognised Principles, rooted in UN treaties, provide a robust foundation from which we lead UK business action on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use our power to convene business and other organisations to find practical solutions to global challenges.

Role in PACE:

The UN Global Compact Network UK will use its global convening power to engage the private sector and share best practice in preventing and reducing the worst forms of child labour (WFCL). UNGC UK will also lead on the work being done to better understand and document how the informal sector feeds into formal supply chains, with a view of how this potentially undermines any positive impact of private sector efforts to eliminate the WFCL.
