UNGC as the national society promoting CSR, Global Compact aims to encourage collaboration between CSR stakeholders in businesses, government and civil society to create long-lasting value for the community. Through various platforms for multi-stakeholder engagement and collective action, the national society aims to advance responsible business practices and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), supporting the common goal of becoming a sustainable nation.

Global Compact has been raising the level of awareness and adoption of CSR amongst businesses since its inception in 2005, and has also expanded its mission to include nurturing the next generation of CSR leaders through its youth initiatives.

Since 2015, after the success of Millennium Development Goals, we move on to support Global Compact on the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.

The SDGs work in the spirit of partnership and pragmatism to make the right choices now to improve life, in a sustainable way, for future generations. They provide clear guidelines and targets for all countries to adopt in accordance with their own priorities and the environmental challenges of the world at large. The SDGs are an inclusive agenda. They tackle the root causes of poverty and unite us together to make a positive change for both people and planet.
