The Global Compact

The Global Compact is an initiative launched in 1999 by the Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and later to become operational in July 2000. The project aims to engage the world of businesses into a new form of collaboration with the United Nations. The companies are asked to commit themselves in the field of human rights, labor safety, protecting the environment, the fight against corruption.

As a member of the Global Compact of the UN since 2003 and to keep the focus on the core values “Responsibility”, The Adecco Group publishes an annual Communication on Progress (CoP) related to our Corporate Social Responsibility. The new edition is available on the program’s official website or on the pages of The Adecco Group site, where you can also find documents of the past years.
