Local Networks were launched to help make the Global Compact relevant across the world’s different economic, political and cultural landscapes and to support meaningful engagement with signatories. The UN Global Compact Local Network in the UK implements a programme of activity in support of UK-based UNGC signatories who wish to maximise the benefits of their engagement with the UN Global Compact.

“Local Networks perform the critical task of rooting the Global Compact within a national context – linked to local priorities and needs – and provide opportunities for participants to improve understanding and share experiences on their work to advance Global Compact principles, partnerships and reporting.”

Executive Director Georg Kell

The UK Network aims to further the Global Compact’s 10 principles that cover human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption and serves members through regular meetings to share best practice and working groups that are active in areas such as reporting, small and medium-sized enterprises, communications, and liaison with other networks.
