Global Compact (Last reviewed in the Scout Report on February 24, 2000)

As more and more businesses grow socially conscious, there has been an interest in adapting business practices to align with certain desired goals. The United Nations Global Compact dovetails quite nicely with this trend, and it is a "strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption." A good place to start on the site is the "About Us" area, which contains information about the Global Compact and their leadership. Moving on, the 'Highlights" area on the homepage contains information about their various leadership summits, access to their monthly bulletin, and topical areas that deal with climate change and clean water initiatives. The "How to Participate" area contains information for various stakeholders, including those in civil society, academia, cities, and business leaders. Many of the materials on the site are available in different languages, including French, Spanish, Russian, German, and Arabic.
