To ensure that the Global Compact Network Egypt is Egypt’s most elite and effective hub, along with 8 pioneering companies the Global Compact Network Egypt foundation falls into place.

GCNE GOVERNANCE

In order to provide continuity, proper governance, and acceptable outcomes for Egypt Network participants, the following are the key elements in the management of the programme:

WE ARE CAPABLE OF

MORE THAN WE KNOW

E

verything we do makes a difference and we have to decide what kind of difference we want to make. Transparency, Accountability and sustainability are today’s slogans of the globe, rooted in this is the core of UN-Global Compact ‘ the world’s largest voluntary corporate citizenship initiative for sustainable and socially responsible tomorrow, for us and our future generations’.

Companies have to change the way they think about products, technologies, processes, and business models. The key to progress, particularly in times of economic crisis, is innovation. By treating sustainability as a goal today, early movers will develop competencies that rivals will be hard-pressed to match. That competitive advantage will stand them in good stead, because sustainability will always be an integral part of development.
