The Work of the GSC and the UNGC

The Global Sourcing Council is a participant in the UN Global Compact (UNGC). We continue to support the UNGC and are committed to the UNGC Ten Principles.

The GSC mission is to educate, advocate and inspire global business enterprises in pursuing profit with purpose through sustainable and responsible global sourcing. Through collaboration with leading business and thought leaders, academia, government organizations and civil societies, associations and consumers groups, the GSC shares best practices to educate and inspire embracing SDGs and the UNGC Ten Principles into standard business practices.

Since joining the UNGC in 2015, the GSC has adopted the 2030 Agenda underlined by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its program framework. GSC promotes the UN SDGs in parallel with the ten principles of the UN Global Compact to its global membership of over 24,000 sourcing professionals through a variety of programs.
