1. THE CHARTER 2015
[Corporate Social Responsibility] is a concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis.
(EU Commission “Corporate Social Responsibility: A business contribution to sustainable development”, 2002)
Social Responsibility is an ethical ideology or theory that an entity, be it an organisation or individual, has an obligation to act to benefit society at large.

United Nations Global Compact
Delivering a better future for all requires action by all.
The vision and aspirations of the drafters of the United Nations Charter, as they set out to be “architects of a better world”, remains a beacon today. But if in 1945 their sights were set largely on Governments, today we know that thousands of companies and civil society organisations are key partners in tackling our world’s most pressing challenges.
Building a better world is a global imperative – not just for the 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty, the millions of youth with no prospect of employment, or one-third of the population living in countries facing water stress. These are just some of the numerous and connected crises that threaten progress, peace and stability in societies and markets everywhere.
The Global Corporate Sustainability Report 2013 reveals that businesses around the world are beginning to take sustainability more seriously. A look at the actions taken by the nearly 8,000 companies from 140 countries participating in the United Nations Global Compact tells a promising story.
Companies – from the largest to the smallest in size, from the most developed to the least developed countries – are striving to ingrain universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anticorruption into their management and operations.
At the same time, while UN Global Compact participants are on a good track in terms of high-level commitments and goal setting, much more needs to be done to deepen sustainability efforts in how they think and act, from boardrooms to supply chains.
The UN Global Compact is continuously developing opportunities for companies to improve performance and increase action, including through issue platforms on climate, water, women’s empowerment and children’s rights that allow them to share risks and accelerate gains. The 101 increasingly active country networks are helping business pursue sustainability in line with local priorities, language and culture.
With growing incentives from investors, consumers and Governments, and pressure from enlightened business and industry leaders, we can move from incremental progress to transformative impact.
We cannot achieve a more equitable, prosperous and sustainable future without business engagement and solutions. The United Nations is committed to deepening its collaboration with the private sector and advancing the corporate responsibility movement. I call on more companies around the world to join the UN Global Compact, and spur a sustainability revolution in markets.
