Upcoming Events

Event: A Conversation about Climate Change & Human Rights
18 September 2019

The UN Global Compact Network UK will be holding an event divided into two distinct parts:

Network Chair, Nicky Black, will moderate a conversation between climate change expert, CDP CEO Paul Simpson, a human rights expert from Clifford Chance, and company Chairman Geoff Skingsley, L’Oreal UKI. They will explore the connections between climate change and human rights, with particular attention to the legal and business issues that arise at the nexus of these two critical themes.

Participants will also discuss the Global Compact Network’s draft strategic plan and Network members are invited to provide feedback on the Advisory Group’s vision for the next three years

Workshop: Communicating Progress: The Essentials

The UN Global Compact Network UK will be repeating its popular training workshop on how to draft a Communication on Progress (COP) that complies with the UN Global Compact’s reporting requirements and effectively communicates with your company’s stakeholders.

Presenters will discuss what is required in your COP, as well as other current themes in sustainability reporting. This workshop is intended to support business organisations producing their first COP, but it is also a great introduction to the UN Global Compact.

Dates for 2020 workshops are as follows: 13 January, 27 April and 7 September. Please register for the date that suits you best.
