Posted 3.1.07Why have 4000 of the world's leading corporations - from Coca Cola to Microsoft - joined the United Nations Global Compact? What benefits and strengths are there for Northeast Ohio Companies?
The United Nations Global Compact is a framework for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption. It offers ten universally accepted principles - first introduced at a Weatherhead-sponsored conference last year - to guide business activities around the world, and seeks to catalyse actions in support of broad UN goals.
Now, we are establishing the Northeastern Ohio Network of the United Nations Global Compact. Please join us and other regional leaders at the introductory meeting, 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 29, 2007 at the George S. Dively Building.
Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University cultivates creativity, innovation, and purpose-driven leadership to design a better world.
