Corporate sustainability has changed the way the world works. Fifteen years ago, 46 companies met at the United Nations to join in a compact with the world body on principles covering human rights, labour and the environment. Today, 8,500 companies in 160 countries take part in this compact and are poised to support sustainable development goals with programmes ranging from women’s rights and anti-corruption to water management and combating climate change, utilizing the strategic advantage of networks in all major regions of the world.
Marking the UN Global Compact’s 15th anniversary, Global Compact+15 will bring business, government and civil society to the UN General Assembly Hall to review the private sector role in advancing global priorities. The event will include the release of a report on the growth of corporate sustainability, and the part played by the UN Global Compact since 2000, and on likely future directions.
Media access to the Global Compact+15 Event will requires:
1) UN MALU media accreditation and 2) registration for the event.

Eligibility for Media Accreditation:
Media accreditation is strictly reserved for members of the press (print, photo, radio, TV, film, news agencies and online media) who represent a bona fide media organization.

The Department of Public Information (DPI) must be satisfied that the individuals applying for accreditation are bona fide media professionals and represent bona fide media organizations (formally registered as a media organization in a country recognized by the United Nations General Assembly).
