United Kingdom

The Global Compact Network United Kingdom was established in June 2003. Since its launch, the network has been business-led and self-financing. Chairman Chris Harrop of Marshalls plc, leads the Network with support from a Steering Committee, Secretariat, and working groups.

The network serves members through regular meetings to share best practices. In addition, working groups are actively engaged in reporting, small and medium-sized enterprises, communications, and liaising with other networks.

Key Goals

  • Provide UK signatories with a facility to consider and advance issues of mutual interest and concern
  • Provide a mechanism through which performance and reporting on UN Global Compact principles can be improved by mutual support
  • Enable participants to share and exchange good practice and experience
  • Provide input to the Global Compact on its future development and activity
  • Promote the Global Compact principles throughout the UK business community
  • Help promote and support the Global Compact worldwide
