What is Social Sustainability?

The United Nations Global Compact defines social sustainability as identifying and managing business impacts, both positive and negative, on people.

The UN Global Compact recognises and calls out the importance of:

1. Stakeholder Engagement
2. The direct or indirect effect companies have on employees, the value chain, customers and local communities

Our niche is Social and Economic sustainability, with a focus on the supply chain.

We are launching Build Global Updates, where we will share thought leadership and insights that challenge the status and forecast the future of crucial Social and Economic Sustainability issues. The spaces will be intentionally limited, Chatham House rule and will not be recorded given the subject matter.
