Event: A Conversation with Lise Kingo & UNGC Network UK AGM

22 June 2017

In compliance with the Network’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, we are required to hold an Annual General Meeting.

Rather than the brief teleconference previously announced, the UN Global Compact Network UK AGM on the afternoon of 22 June will now be an in person event featuring an opportunity to hear from UNGC Executive Director, Lise Kingo.

The event will begin at 3pm. During the first part Lise Kingo will share her views on the current state of corporate sustainability and answer questions about the UNGC’s plans for the future. The second part will be dedicated to the AGM that, as always, will be brief – not longer than 30 minutes. It will be followed by a presentation on the UNGC’s new funding model.

For more information and to reserve your place, please contact the Secretariat. Please do not delay as places are limited. Please note that if you already registered for the teleconference, you don’t need to register again.

Workshop: Communicating Progress: The Essentials
11 September 2017

The UN Global Compact Network UK is repeating its half-day training workshop on how to draft a Communication on Progress (COP) that complies with the UN Global Compact’s reporting requirements and effectively communicates with your company’s stakeholders.

Presenters will discuss COP requirements, materiality, links to GRI, data collection/metrics and effective presentation. This workshop is aimed at people producing their first COP and always receives very positive reviews from participants.
