The UN Global Compact

GPCCI pledges to adhere to the ten principles of the UN Global Compact

The UN Global Compact (UNGC) is an initiative to align companies’ strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals. GPCCI strongly supports this initiative by making a clear statement of this commitment to our stakeholders and the general public. We are upholding these ten principles in every business we do.
