Slovakia

On 17 September 2008 members of the Slovak business community joined together with representatives from government, UNDP and civil society to launch a UN Global Compact Local Network. Several issues are driving the corporate responsibility agenda in Slovakia, including reducing barriers to employment for disadvantaged groups, promoting greater environmental responsibility and fighting corruption.

The Global Compact Network Slovakia was launched under the auspices of H. E. Mr. Dušan Čaplovič, Deputy Prime Minister for Knowledge-Based Society, European Affairs, Human Rights and Minorities. According to Čaplovič, joining the Global Compact shows that Slovak companies, and those operating in Slovakia, are increasingly understanding their “responsibility towards employees, the region, society, state and the world”.

At the Global Compact launch, the Slovak National Strategy for CSR Support was presented publicly for the first time. The Strategy, which is being implemented as part of a broader European Union plan, seeks to increase the competitiveness of the Slovak business environment, support transparency and improve the quality of life in Slovakia.
