The Global Compact Network Italy Foundation (GCNI Foundation) was established with the primary purpose of contributing to the development of the UN Global Compact in Italy, an initiative for the promotion of a culture of corporate citizenship fostered and managed by the United Nations on a global scale.

The mission of the GCNI Foundation is articulated in 7 points. In accordance with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the Foundation aims to:

  1. be recognized as an institutional spokesperson that allows companies engaged in sustainability in a multi-stakeholder perspective to be heard
  2. raise awareness and the level of national involvement
  3. help make sustainability the main lever of change in pursuit of a future that is more efficient, more equitable and safer in the management of resources
  4. be characterized as a subject oriented towards the development of operational solutions and the creation of shared economic, social and environmental values
  5. encourage partnerships, collective actions and dialogue among all actors in the promotion of sustainability
  6. promote accountability, fairness and transparency in communication and corporate reporting
  7. endorse the contribution of Italian companies and synergies at international level

It is currently outlining the course to take in a series of steps that will be implemented from May 2015. On June 5th, the "Human Rights and Labour Rights: tangible issues for businesses" questionnaire was sent to all companies belonging to the GCNI Foundation with the aim of identifying the materiality of the universally recognized rights for the respondent companies' business.

23 Jun 2015

The event “Global Compact +15: Business as a Force for Good” will be held in New York from 23 to 25 of June. Marking the UN Global Compact’s 15th anniversary, Global Compact +15 will bring business and civil society to the United Nations to show how the private sector is taking action and partnering to advance societal priorities, with an emphasis on the United Nations global agenda for sustainable development to be released later this year (the Sustainable Development Goals – SDGs).

24 Jun 2015

The UN System Private Sector Focal Points (PSFP) Meeting and the Annual Local Networks Forum (ALNF) will be convened alongside one another reflecting the Global Compact’s goal to better engage the private sector in taking action in pursuit of UN goals and issues at the country level. Held each year, the PSFP Meeting aims to enhance communication, strengthen learning and improve coordination among UN staff working with the private sector, and the ALNF brings together representatives from Local Networks and companies to share their experiences and network. A representation of the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation will take part in the ALNF, accompanied by a delegation of companies active in the Global Compact Italian Network.
