The Local Networks of the UN Global Compact advance the initiative in their respective countries. They act as a point of contact for issues relating to the ten Global Compact principles and the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, and as a platform for learning and dialogue. The Global Compact initiative is open to businesses, civil society organizations and public institutions.
The Global Compact Network in Austria is coordinated by respACT – austrian business council for sustainable development. A pivotal role is played by the Steering Committee, which is made up of pro-active members of the Austrian Local Network and meets periodically to plan and evaluate activities.
