A "fundamental shift" in the way business is conducted around the world is leading to improved corporate responsibility, according to the Executive Director of the UN Global Compact Office.

The Global Compact encourages companies to incorporate, environmental, social and governance issues into their business operations in order to benefit people while keeping those companies profitable.

Georg Kell says the corporate world understands that if human rights are not promoted, corruption is not tackled and the environment not protected, business will falter.

Elizabeth Phillip asked Mr Kell if it makes sense for the UN to work with the private sector on these issues.
