Global Compact Launches Web Platform to Mobilize Business for Rio+20

(New York) – The UN Global Compact today launched a new website – compact4rio.org– in support of the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum: Innovation & Collaboration for the Future We Want, to be held in Rio de Janeiro from 15-18 June 2012.
Organized by the Global Compact in cooperation with the Rio+20 Secretariat, the UN System and the Global Compact Local Network Brazil, the Rio+20 Corporate Sustainability Forum aims to strengthen the business contribution to sustainable development globally – seeking to bring greater scale to responsible business practices, to advance and diffuse sustainable innovation, and to stimulate broader collaboration between companies, governments, civil society and the UN.

The Forum will take place in the days leading up to the critical UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), which will bring together government leaders in an effort to build consensus on a more sustainable course for our world. Over 2,000 participants are expected at the Forum, representing business as well as investors, governments, local authorities, civil society and UN entities.

As part of the Forum, the Global Compact is making a call for commitments by organizations to advance Rio priorities. Companies will be invited to mobilize strong commitments to take action or form partnerships supported by company leadership, and then be prepared to demonstrate progress. Further information – including criteria and how to register commitments – can be found on the Forum website.

The Forum website will be updated regularly with information on the programme, partners, registration, sponsorship, and related events in Rio.

For any questions regarding the Forum, please contact: rio2012@nullunglobalcompact.org.
