This year annual Local Network Report has been launched at the Annual Local Nework Forum last week, 24-26 April in Geneva. The publication showcases the critical work of Local Networks to advance corporate sustainability around the world.
The report provides a comprehensive view of Local Network activities related to the objectives of the Global Compact – namely, in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and in support of broader UN goals and issues. While not an exhaustive list of achievements, this year’s report provides key milestones and activities from over 50 networks who contributed content.
