• Review of the work done so far and priorities for 2020

    The main challenge for the Network in 2018 was to “transfer” at the local level the “One Global Compact” governance model launched by the United Nations and characterized by two original elements: closer coordination, compared to the past, between the New York Offices and the Local Networks around the world, and the launch of new tools and opportunities for exchange on sustainability issues at the international level (such as, for example, the SDGs Academy or the Action Platforms) in the face of a greater financial commitment in support of the initiative required of the profit organizations involved. In 2019, the new model has been consolidating at the local level, also strengthened by a continuous growth trend of the Italian base of the movement, as well as the progressive increase of "Founder members” to the Italian Network of the Global Compact (GCNI).

    During the year that is about to close, the Foundation's statutory bodies were also renewed with the confirmation of the Chairman, of some members of the Board of Directors, and with the entry in the board of new companies with mature sustainability profiles and new propositivities. In September, Daniela Bernacchi – a professional with extensive experience in both multinational and non-profit companies – was appointed Secretary General of the GCNI.
