Global Compact

The Global Compact is a joint project of the International Labor Organization (ILO), the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights. The site outlines the nine principles drafted at the World Economic Forum on January 31, 1999 to serve as guidelines for world businesses. The principles address three basic areas of concern: human rights, labor standards, and environment. The Global Compact also provides means and methods for enacting these principles, including case studies and research from the ILO and the UNEP. The site's Country Information section is a searchable database of labor, human rights, and environmental information from Abkhyazia to Zimbabwe. The News and Reviews section contains current and archived news, as well as statements about the Global Compact from UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and Secretary General Amnesty International Pierre Sane among others. Here, users will also find an analytical overview of the research and debates over these topics.
