The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative with the vision of creating a sustainable and inclusive global economy that delivers lasting benefits to people, communities and markets.
Communication on progress
The UNGC supports companies to do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.
NAB’s Communication on Progress - outlining the practical actions we are taking to support the ten principles - is available on page 79 of our 2016 Dig Deeper report.
Sustainable Development Goals
The UNGC supports business in taking strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation. The SDGs were developed with input from the business community and agreed by all member states of the UN. The SDGs comprise 17 ambitious goals and 169 targets that seek to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, promote economic growth and prosperity, improve health and education, and protect the planet.
NAB’s contribution to the SDGs is summarised on page 80 of our 2016 Dig Deeper report.
