The United Nations Global Compact

The Latvian-British Chamber of Commerce had the opportunity to reflect deeply on sustainability in business and innovation in the lead-up to our submission in October 2016 of our first biannual Communication on Engagement (CoE) to HE Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, as a proud International NGO Partner of the United Nations Global Compact.

The Latvian-British Chamber of Commerce is a participant and member of the United Nations Global Compact since December 2010.

The United Nations Global Compact is a United Nations initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. The UN Global Compact is a principle-based framework for businesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Under the Global Compact, companies are brought together with UN agencies, labour groups and civil society.
