What We Do

Global Compact Network South Africa is a member-based corporate sustainability platform that brings companies together with labour organisations, academic institutions, cities, non-governmental organisations and UN agencies. GCN SA works collectively with members to advance the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and the UNGC Ten Principles on human rights, labour protection, environmental protection and anti-corruption. 

CEO’s voluntarily commit their companies to implement the 10 Principles and to take action on the Global Goals.
