UN Global Compact Network Italy (UNGCN Italy) was established in 2002 to contribute to the development in Italy of the "UN Global Compact", a project designed to promote the culture of corporate citizenship launched in 1999 by the then Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan.

Considering this objective, the Network operates as an information platform, giving support and coordination to Italian companies and organizations which resolve to share, support and employ a whole range of universal principles in matters of human rights, labour, environment and the fight against corruption, thereby contributing to the accomplishment of "a more wide-ranging and sustainable global economy".

In June 2013, the UNGCN Italy  became legally established as the Global Compact Network Italy Foundation.
