*The United Nations Global Compact was proposed by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan at the January 1999 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In July 2000, the initiative was formally inaugurated at the UN headquarters in New York. As of December 2009, more than 7,000 businesses and other organizations from 134 countries were participating in the compact.
Participating companies voluntarily uphold ten principles in the four areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. While seeking to promote the CSR activities of companies as part of their responsibility as corporate citizens, the compact endeavors through these activities to foster a sustainable and inclusive global economy, starting with the achievement of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
