This catch phrase has become the most crucial topic for global leaders of corporations
and society everywhere.
It coincides with the 4 values pursued by the UNGC which include environment, human rights,
labor and anti-corruption.
Since it was established in 2007, Global Compact Korea Network has tried to introduce
global trend on CSR to Korean companies and reflect Korean companies' best case in
international CSR community.
2011 will be an important year for Global Compact Korea Network to reach the turning point
for another step forward. The Global CSR Conference 2011 will be held to diagnose
the current status of corporate sustainability and raise awareness of UNGC.
This conference will allow for the participation of all domestic and foreign personnel affiliated
with the CSR to share and discuss outstanding cases of advanced companies
in order to attain a new paradigm of corporate sustainability.
It could also be said that this conference will be a part of the private sector's efforts for
implementing the agreements made at the G20 Seoul Summit held in South Korea last year.
It is my great hope that this conference will result in further dissemination of UN Global
Compact values in East Asia and beyond. For this, I urge participation and support from
responsible corporations all around the world.
