Whenever you are in doubt, recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man. Gandhi Do what is right. Rosa Parks . . . for with freedom come responsibilities. Nelson Mandela An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come. Victor Hugo *

The Global Compact

The Global Compact Go to this Web site

Through the power of collective action, the Global Compact seeks to promote responsible corporate citizenship so that businesses can be part of the solution to the challenges of globalization. In this way, the private sector—in partnership with other social actors—can help realize the UN Secretary-General’s vision: a more sustainable and inclusive global economy.
