The Global Compact Network Germany

The Global Compact Network Germany is an active learning and dialogue platform for the implementation of the ten Global Compact principles. Biodiversity is one of the priorty issues of the network in Germany in 2010.

The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

The German Global Compact network seeks to promote multi-stakeholder dialogue and constructive cooperation between government, business and other sectors of society in the fields of:

  • Learning: Assist companies with the implementation and internalization of the ten principles; communicate best practices; strengthen exchange between academic research and practice; organize joint events
  • Policy dialogues: Act as a focal point for government and civil society organisations; facilitate dialogue and exchange among all stakeholders such as seminars or roundtable discussions, disseminate information about CSR-trends and activities
  • Outreach/networks: Motivate companies to become signatories of the GC; liaise with other Global Compact networks worldwide and the GC Office in New York; provide media contacts, communication and public relations
  • Projects: Develop partnership projects

Currently DGCN has over 140 companies as well as business associations, government organisations, NGOs, public bodies and research institutions as members. GTZ, the German development cooperation agency, is the coordinator of the German GC Network.
