To participate in the UN Global Compact, a company:
- Sends a Letter of Commitment signed by the chief executive (and, where possible, endorsed by the board) to the United Nations Secretary-General expressing support for the UN Global Compact and its principles (mailing address: United Nations, New York, NY 10017; fax: +1(212) 963-1207).
- Completes the Online Registration Form on the UN Global Compact website and uploads a digital copy of the Letter of Commitment.
Due to administrative constraints, organizations with less than ten direct employees (micro enterprises) will not be entered into the participant database. However, the Global Compact encourages micro enterprises to stay informed about all Global Compact activities via the official website and to engage with their Global Compact country network.
