The UN Global Compact Network Italy (UNGCN Italy) was established with the primary purpose of contributing to the development of the UN Global Compact in Italy, an initiative for the promotion of a culture of corporate citizenship fostered and managed by the United Nations on a global scale.

The mission of the UNGCN Italy is articulated in 7 points. In accordance with the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), the Network aims to:

  1. be recognized as an institutional spokesperson that allows companies engaged in sustainability in a multi-stakeholder perspective to be heard
  2. raise awareness and the level of national involvement
  3. help make sustainability the main lever of change in pursuit of a future that is more efficient, more equitable and safer in the management of resources
  4. be characterized as a subject oriented towards the development of operational solutions and the creation of shared economic, social and environmental values
  5. encourage partnerships, collective actions and dialogue among all actors in the promotion of sustainability
  6. promote accountability, fairness and transparency in communication and corporate reporting
  7. endorse the contribution of Italian companies and synergies at international level

The UN Global Compact Network Italy operates under a Memorandum of Understanding signed with the UN Global Compact Office of New York.
