UNGC Policy on Micro Enterprises
The UN Global Compact does not currently allow companies with less than ten employees to formally join the initiative and be added into the UNGC database.
UK Network Policy on Micro Enterprises
UK Network membership is only open to organisations that are formally part of the UNGC initiative, which means that micro enterprises are currently not eligible to join.
We are conscious of the valuable contribution that smaller organisations can bring to the Network. One of our primary goals is to present members with diverse views on the Global Compact’s issue areas and including the perspective of smaller organisations is important to us. Therefore we have established a list of organisations that wish to engage with the Network, but cannot join formally. This allows micro enterprises to stay informed of opportunities to engage with the UK Network. Please contact the Secretariat if you would like to be added to this list.
Although most of our events are for Members only, we are prepared to make exceptions to our attendance policy on a case by case basis. If you would like to attend a particular event, please contact the Secretariat.
