The UK Network has created a programme to help participants efficiently and effectively meet the requirement for publishing a COP by learning from the experience of their peers. The peer review process creates a “safe” environment where businesses can have candid conversations about the challenges of producing a COP and exchange constructive criticism.
All UK Network members are encouraged to participate in this programme as both peer reviewers and reviewees. There will normally be 3-4 review rounds of Peer Reviews annually, depending upon requests from Network participants.
Peer reviewers consider each COP along two critical dimensions:
• Implementation of Global Compact principles
• Transparency and disclosure
