In December 2016, the Global Compact Network Italy started working on a new collection of business practices focusing on the implementation of strategies, policies and projects to support the achievement of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals 2030. Since then, an intense and ongoing dialogue and research has been carried out involving 11 organizations belonging to the GCNI and has culminated in the publication of the Report “ITALIAN BUSINESSES: PRACTICES TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. Following the path defined by the Sustainable Development Goals.

The report was launched at the Conference on “The Sustainable Development Goals: Experiences and Progress on Their Implementation in Europe”, which was held on 25th October at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in the presence of Lise KINGO, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact and other illustrious guests.

In 2010, on the occasion of the last Leaders Summit (24-25 June), the Global Compact Network Italy published a Best Practices Collection. The publication can certainly be considered to be a first attempt to showcase some of the most interesting experiences implemented by the Italian companies and organizations within the UN Global Compact framework. The practices have been selected following a double criterion. Some of them can be considered as real "best practices": they are related to very innovative programs or activities carried out by companies and/or organizations in implementing the ten UN Global Compact principles or in support of broader UN goals. Others, in line with the UN Global Compact approach, can be more correctly defined "on progress programs" such as programs and/or activities implemented by companies and organizations that are not characterized by an innovative approach but are still very interesting in a "learn from each other's experiences" logic. They are indeed, simple but very effective programs and/or activities, which can be extremely interesting for new UN Global Compact participants and/or for the numerous SMEs that participate in the initiative.
