UN Global Compact

Ahead of the UN's Rio+20 conference on sustainable development, the Global Compact, a UN voluntary initiative for responsible corporate citizenship will hold its own forum.

Over 1,000 business people from 130 countries are expected to attend from 15-18 June in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

They will be discussing how to align their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted Global Compact principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption.

Samuel Di Piazza, Vice Chairman at Citigroup tells Julie Walker that business is embracing sustainability as a strategic issue, not just a social good.
