3,000 companies, including Humanscale, expelled from UN Global compact in 7 Years

Friday 17 February 2012

Office furniture supplier Humanscale is one of the latest U.S. firms to be expelled from the U.N. Global Compact, as the program announces that its expulsions have reached 3,123 since 2005.
The company was expelled for failing to communicate progress on their efforts to implement the compact’s ten sustainability principles, in the areas of environment, human rights, labour and anti-corruption, the U.N. says.
But the U.N. says the number of new companies joining the compact significantly exceeds the number of expulsions. It has a goal for 20,000 business participants by 2020. The compact currently has over 10,000 participants, including 7,000 businesses.
The Global Compact is a voluntary initiative in which members pledge to make sustainability principles a part of their strategy, culture and day-to-day operations. They are expected to communicate annually with their stakeholders about their progress on implementing the principles and on undertaking partnership projects in support of broad U.N. goals.
Saying that commitments must be followed by action, the U.N. has called on its business participants to broaden and deepen their implementation efforts.
