Deloitte has been involved with the United Nations Global Compact, an initiative seeking to promote responsible global citizenship by advancing universal values in business operations, since its inception in 2000. Deloitte is the only professional services organization to be a founding member of the initiative. The Global Compact brings companies together with UN agencies, labor organizations and civil society to support 10 principles in the areas of anti-corruption, human rights, labor and the environment. Deloitte strongly supports the 10 Global Compact principles and participates in global meetings and a number of regional Global Compact networks. Deloitte has also fulfilled its obligation to publicly communicate its progress in relation to the Global Compact principles.
