In cooperation with UN Global Compact Network Finland

The UN Global Compact is the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative. UN Global Compact has done crucial work on how companies have approached their sustainability work. By providing best practices, networking, training and tools they help companies build a responsible and successful business. The UN Global Compact supports companies in their sustainability efforts through a principle-based framework and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

UN Global Compact already has a wide network of companies, but to reach even more diverse actors in the field of sustainable development, UN Global Compact Finland has joined forces with Måndag. Together we have organized an event to highlight the different aspects of companies’ human rights responsibilities and to launch UN Global Compact’s Business & Human Rights Accelerator program in Finland.

In the future, human rights issues will also be at the center of climate work, and companies will be a key in this. They will need all the support available to identify the human rights impacts of their business and turn these findings into concrete action.
