Raising the Bar Through Collective Action: Anti-Corruption Efforts in Action in India
The UN Global Compact is the largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative in the world and offers a unique platform to engage companies in responsible business behaviour in the world, through the Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour standards, environment and anti-corruption. It provides access to the United Nations’ broad knowledge base in development issues as well as in mobilizing governments, businesses, civil society, labour organizations and academic institutions to take collective action. Today there are more than 90 Global Compact Local Networks in key markets across the world. The Networks provide an opportunity for members to share experiences, innovative practices and to collaborate for furtherance of responsible business values within country specific contexts.
