Global Compact Network Vietnam (GCNV)

The Global Compact Network Vietnam (GCNV), launched in 2007, is a cutting edge initiative developed in partnership between the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and the United Nations in Vietnam (UN). The goal of the GCNV is to be the national corporate social responsibility centre of excellence. Our job is to identify, anticipate and diffuse the tensions between business and communities, business and the environment, business and the government, business and the consumer, leading to sustainable businesses.
The GCNV is the local network for the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is the world's largest corporate sustainability initiative. As a leadership initiative endorsed by Chief Executives, it seeks to align business operations and strategies everywhere with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of Human rights, Labour, Environment and Anti-corruption. It was launched on 2000 by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to engage the private sector in addressing development challenges. Now it counts more than 7000 participants, including over 5200 businesses in 130 countries around the world.
The GCNV comprises of over 95 members, consisting of national and international companies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), academic, United Nations (UN) and government agencies.
