The UN Global Compact (UNGC) applies the leadership principle. If the CEO of a company's global parent (holding, group, etc.) embraces the UN Global Compact by sending a letter to the UN Secretary-General, the UNGC Office will post only the name of the parent company on the global list assuming that all subsidiaries participate as well. Subsidiaries that wish to directly send a letter to the Secretary-General, to underline their commitment, will be listed as participants, and are invited to become active in the UN Global Compact country network of their host country.
