The Names Vary, But it’s All About Ethical Values
While the titles vary, including “corporate social responsibility” or “global business” they are addressing shared values and principles of responsible business in a global economy.
“The Manifesto was drafted by a working group of business leaders and experts in economic ethics, convened by the Global Ethic Foundation. On 6 October 2009, it was presented to the public in a symposium at UN

“The United Nations Global Compact, also known as Compact or UNGC, is a United Nations initiative to encourage businesses worldwide to adopt sustainable and socially responsible policies, and to report on their implementation. The Global Compact is a principle-based framework for businesses, stating ten principles in the areas of human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption. Under the Global Compact, companies are brought together with UN agencies, labour groups and civil society.”
